ESA/NTS had a goal in 2015 to revamp the certification program so that renewing a certification was less cumbersome for certification holders. The first step was to change the renewal cycle to be two years rather than one, which meant fewer forms to submit and remember. This change became a reality in the summer of 2015. Recently the ESA Board of Directors approved the final change, which is to expand the types of training courses that can be used for CEU credits. Rather than two thirds of the CEUs needing to come from the courses on the NTS CEU Accreditation list, certification holders may submit CEUs from any training courses that align with the subject matter of their certification.
