The AAPTE recognizes that there are circumstances that may render a certificant unable to accumulate the required number of CECs in the allotted timeframe. There is a six month extension option available for those that have not completed their required continuing education credits.
You may obtain the extension by registering online on the AAPTE's recertification page. There is a fee of $85.00. The extension fee does not include the recertification fee due upon submission of Recertification Application. Certificant's must register online prior to their recertification expiration date. Upon AAPTE's receiving your online extension and payment, the AAPTE will grant the six (6) month extension.
Failure to acquire the necessary credits for recertification during the 6 month extension period will render the certificant's certification expired and the certificant will be required retake and pass the AAPTE CPT-EFS Exam to receive current certification status from the AAPTE.
