To remain certified for the upcoming year, Certified Professional Environmental Educators must renew their certification by January 31st. Certification renewal allows you to remain connected to the EE community in Kentucky and ensures that your knowledge and practices remain current.
To renew your certification, you must:
Those who completed their certification in 2022 must complete all renewal requirements except for continuing education.
In order to regain your certified status in case your certification has lapsed, you must complete a reinstatement course in addition to the other continuing education requirements. First, contact email@example.com to confirm your certification status. Then, fill out the Reinstatement Course Application. [PDF, 381KB]
Only graduates whose certification has been lapsed for 3 years or fewer will be eligible for reinstatement, and the Reinstatement Course fee will be $25 for those whose certification has been lapsed for one year, $50 for two years, and $75 for three years.
