Lapsed Membership? – NHVTA Amnesty Policy for Technicians with Lapsed Certifications - $75/year lapsed

The NHVTA offers an Amnesty Program for those technicians whose certification may have lapsed. Certification is considered lapsed if it is overdue by one year. Applicants must include an Amnesty Application Form for each year missed, listing 12 CEU for each year missed. The CEU’s do not have to be from the missed year, but 12 for each missed year are required. A total payment of $75 per year lapsed is required.

Time Limit: An NH certification will go into expired status if not renewed for 4 consecutive years. Expired certifications must appeal to the board, Amnesty Form below, for reinstatement and will be required to reapply for NH registration and meet all of the standard requirements.

Note: Amnesty Program does not apply if you have a current certification/license in another state. If that is the case apply for reciprocity.
