DES Recertification

  • You must receive 20 clock hours of new virtual/digital-related continuing education programs, with an average of 10 clock hours per year
  • The re-certification fee is $150
  • No exam is required if certification does not lapse
  • Former DES recipients interested in regaining his/her certification must re-qualify through the application process and pass the DES exam

  • Clock hours earned
  • title, session description and learner objectives
