ABRA Certified Technicians are required to renew annually on June 30th. Those that are expired are removed from being advertised as a technician on the ABRA website under our Validate a Technician search. Those Individuals who choose to allow their certification to lapse can renew at any time for a period of five years. They will also be required to update their Continuing Education requirements in their profile. However, when the technician renews, they must also pay the back log of unpaid renewal fees. Once the technician accumulates more than five years of unpaid renewals, they are removed from the ABRA database of technicians and must go though the 24hr CBRT course again.
Your initial CBRT, CBRS or CBRM certificate may be valid for less than one year when it’s initially processed because all certifications expire June 30th of each year. Subsequent renewals are always valid for one full year.
Active Member Companies
Active Member Companies are required to have at a minimum, one Certified Technician on staff per claimed location. If an Active Member company looses its only technician, they are put on temporary suspension and removed from the website search until they get another employee certified or hire a certified technician. If an Active Member allows their membership to lapse they must reapply. If a company changes hands, they must reapply.
