However, if the certification maintenance requirements are not met and are not reported to the certification department by August 31, individuals will have to meet reinstatement requirements in order to regain the CCC.
By August 31, 2020, certificate holders who are Not Current for not earning and/or not reporting CMHs must login to their ASHA My Account to
If you failed to earn at least 30 CMHs between January 1, 2017, and December 31, 2019, you have until August 31, 2020, to earn and report additional hours.
