Amnesty Reinstatement

Amnesty Reinstatement of CC-AASP Certification Status


The AASP Fellows recently approved an amnesty reinstatement procedure to allow former CC-AASPs, whose certification status has expired, to become recertified or change their expired certification status. This time-limited procedure is designed to provide former CC-AASPs the opportunity to reinstate their certification status without having to undergo undue financial or professional strain. Former CC-AASPs who do not request amnesty reinstatement of their certification status within the time frame outlined below will be required to reapply for certification and meet the certification requirements at that time if they desire to become certified again.
