Submissions of a case for certification or re-certification must be based on the current version of the Protocol Guide

Recertification Every Two Years
Requires attendance at the EEG Info 5-day Introductory Course, Practicum 1, Practicum 2, or In-Person attendance at Advanced Clinical Summit, and new case presentation (based on the current version of the Protocol Guide).

Also requires new written case presentations as described above.

If a clinician allows their certification to lapse without completing the re-certification in time, then their requirements reset to the date when they register to begin their re-certification. Certification requirements that were not in effect for their initial certification would now be required. For instance, if a clinician initiated their certification process at a time when the practicum weekends were not yet required, or when a certain book was not yet required, the re-certification would now require those elements that were missed in the initial certification process.
