In order to maintain the BCC credential, credential holders must pay the annual maintenance fee every year, adhere to CCE policies such as the BCC Code of Ethics and disclosure requirements, and complete the recertification process at the end of each five-year period. Currently, the annual maintenance fee is $40. You will receive a renewal notice each year approximately six weeks before your certification month. Recertification is required every five years. Recertification notices and instructions are mailed in conjunction with the annual maintenance fee at the end of your five-year certification period. If you do not receive this notice one month before your expiration date, please contact CCE as soon as possible. In order to recertify, you will need to be able to document 100 hours of continuing education completed during your five-year certification period. At least three continuing education hours must be in the area of ethics. In order to maintain a specialty designation, at least 18 of the 100 continuing education hours must be applicable to that designated area. All continuing education activities must meet the BCC Recertification Guidelines.
