Step One: Renewal Payment
CBIS, CBIST, or PCBIS certificants may pay the annual renewal fee online or via check:
- If paying online, visit the Marketplace here
- If paying by check, please complete the Statement for Check Payment form
Step Two: Renewal Form
Select the proper form based on your current certification. You will need your ACBIS Credentials to begin the application and populate your information.
If you need to recover your ACBIS Credentials, click here.
Submit your required renewal form online. Printed, mailed or faxed copies of applications will not be accepted.
Once all renewal materials have been received by the ACBIS office, you can expect to receive your updated certificate via email within 3-4 business days.
Step Three: Records Maintenance
ACBIS conducts random renewal audits each year and, therefore, all certificants are encouraged to maintain evidence of continuing education and training for three years. Examples of approved documentation include continuing education unit transcripts, letters from national organizations, college transcripts, and/or proof of attendance at in-services, seminars, and workshops.
Once all renewal materials have been received by our office, you can expect to receive your updated certificate via email within 3-4 business days. (Please ensure that your email address is spelled correctly on the renewal application.)
