Recertifying as a Fellow

Fellows are required to recertify every three years. Recertification maintains the integrity of the ACHE credentialing program and helps ensure ongoing commitment to professional development.

Is it time to recertify?
ACHE will notify you when you are eligible to recertify. When you are eligible, you will be given access to the online recertification application from My ACHE. The application will not be available until it is time for you to recertify.

Stay on track!
It is a good idea to periodically check your continuing education hours which can be done at My ACHE.
