AFE Certification recognizes the highest degree of personal and professional advancement. That's why it is essential to maintain your CPMM, CPE or CPS throughout your career.

AFE Certification is valid for three (3) years. To maintain this respected designation, applicants must achieve a minimum number of Continuing Education Units (CEU's) from ongoing involvement in the field, continuing education and professional activities. The recertification requirements for each program are listed in the Recertification Guidelines for the individual programs:

To renew your AFE certification, applicants should complete the Application for Recertification and return it with the filing fee to the Association for Facilities Engineering. Please include the courses, presentations or other professional activities completed. The Recertification Application is available both in Microsoft Word® format as an electronic form you can complete electronically or as a PDF form that can be downloaded and filled in.

Recertification applicants must submit their paperwork before their recertification date; there is no grace period for recertification. Individuals who submit their applications after the expiration of their certificates will be assessed a late fee. Please contact the AFE Certification Department at (571) 203-7171 if you are unsure of your recertification date.
