There will be limits as to how many RUs may be earned in a particular area. For example, even 3 years of full-time employment would not provide enough RUs to re-certify; the candidate would need to earn additional RUs through other activities.
Some re-certification activities will require both a “proof of attendance” item as well as a description.
Individuals must maintain a Re-certification Journal (RJ) that tracks RUs as they are accumulated. As these activities must be documented in the Re-certification Application, it’s helpful to track as they are completed, and the RJ is submitted as part of the Re-certification Application.
The RJ will include a section for each type of activity, and spaces to fill in for very specific validation points.
