As an executive involved in the profession, you will have no difficulty maintaining your certification. Since 2003, recertification is required every five years. To recertify, you must fulfill the requirements listed below and submit a completed Recertification Report Form in the fifth year after your original date of certification. Once you reach age 55, you are a CFEE for life. There is no separate charge for recertification, with the exception of any fees related to attending the required conventions and courses.
CFEE re-certification will be required every five years. The requirements are as follows:
You must successfully complete a minimum of one (1) CFEE Core Curriculum class or three (3) IFEA Webinars in the five years prior to re-certification. Certificates of Completion will be provided as proof of attendance. Courses offered by our affiliated chapters and approved educational institution/professional organization partners may sometimes be substitued for these classes/webinars, but must be approved in advance by the IFEA Academy of Event Education. Publication of an article in IFEA's i.e. magazine may be substituted for one of the Core Curriculum classes. Article topics must be approved in advance by the "i.e." editorial staff.
