Archival Recertification Credits

As a Certified Archivist, you now have the option of recertifying by petition or recertifying by exam. If you choose to recertify by petition, you will most likely take a variety of continuing education courses. These courses will be listed in Section B. Education, and range from 20 credits for a university-level course to 1 credit for a 1-2 hour webinar. Many organizations will request that a particular course be pre-qualified through ACA, and these courses are listed below. Since there are now more than 750 individual courses in our list since 2005, they have been organized by year for ease of use. Many of the online workshops are still available, even if it has been a few years since the original posting.

Please note that if you are recertifying in 2016, only those courses taken from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2015 will be accepted for credit. Older course listings are available for point of reference only.
