Recertification Application Processing Time

Recertification Application Processing Time

 Congratulations on submitting your recertification application! Processing times are dependent on when the National Registry received a completed application for review. 

Electronic applications that have been submitted and are ready for review by the National Registry have a processing time of around 72 business hours.  
Paper applications that have been submitted and are ready for review by the National Registry have a 6-8 week processing time. 

Processing times may vary due to fluctuations in the numbers of applications submitted during the recertification season. Higher volumes mean longer processing times.
