Recertification Toolkit

Each CFI needs 24 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every three years to re-certify. You can pay the $150 renewal fee online. You will receive an invoice 2 months prior to your date and can pay directly through that email or in your profile. Select My Profile from the Quicklinks, and then hover over the My Profile tab and select invoice from the dropdown menu.

Check out Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates for training courses where you can earn CEUs towards your recertification.  There are free learning opportunities available as such as WZ articles in LPM and Coffee Before Class. The Institute of Internal Auditors has some great training opportunities as well as Humintell.

Please enter your CEU information directly into your profile! Click the YourCEU tab under "Quick Links".
