Recertification Toolkit

Each CFI needs 24 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every three years to re-certify. You may pay the renewal fee online. Once logged in, go to Account Management, and then click Manage Membership. Use the renew CFI button to complete the transaction. In an effort to be more eco-friendly, we are no longer mailing out new certificates. You can find the updated one under the About Myself tab in your profile that you can print. 

Check out the WZ Campus and WZ’s 10 Hour Investigative Interviewing Courses for online courses where you can earn CEUs towards your recertification.  The Institute of Internal Auditors has some great training opportunities as well as Humintell.
