National Registry Recertification Guidance

Each year as we get close to Registry recertification season, the ACE Division updates and publishes a guide on the OEMS website which details an express option for Registry certified providers to complete their online National Registry Recertification application. This guide can be found at:

It includes step-by-step instructions on recertification, both with screenshots or without. The guide is updated each year, however maintaining up-to-date screenshots due to tweaks and changes Registry makes to its website, can be a challenge. The basic guidance in the document is sound, even with the changes Registry has made to their website.
