NCRT Recertification Procedures
If you were certified or re certified prior to December 2015, you should have already completed the "Recertification 2018" process.
-- NCRTs who have not done so, will be made inactive as of January 31, 2019.
(This will mean that you no longer have access to the Network Login tab and other tabs that require your log in. Use the Contact Us tab to set up a time to discuss reactivation.)

If you were certified after December 2015, you will be due for re certification at the three year mark following your original certification date.
-- That is if you were certified originally in January 2016 you are due for recertification January 2019. February 2016 will be due for recertification February 2019 and so on.

Check My Info tab for your certification information.
Find more information and link to apply at the Recertification tab.

NCRI Recertification - coming in 2020
There will be no need for recertification for NCRIs until January of 2020. Anyone certified in the pilot year (2016) and then in 2017 will start being ready for recertification.

The format for reporting on input is currently in development. Survey Monkey questionnaires have been distributed to some NCRIs as a test to determine how best to ask for data from the NCRIs. More information will be provided here as it is finalized.
