Issuance of Certificate

Replacements are available for a fee. Beginning January 2004, the wall certificate will be issued only once. It will no longer have an expiration date and will not be automatically reissued for subsequent recertifications.

Keep Your Information Current

It is the applicant's responsibility to notify the NNCC National Office of any changes in name, address, email, and phone number for the duration of their certification/recertification period. Notifications of changes on other mailing lists such as ANNA may not effect a change in your recertification records.
