As of August 2015, all individuals who have lapsed certifications are eligible for one of the reinstatement procedures below, regardless of whether they received a reinstatement under the old policy or under Amnesty:
Reinstatement of Lapsed Credentials (1 to 3 Years)
If you wish to become recertified after your certificate has lapsed, you may be eligible for a reinstatement, which includes a reinstatement fee and successfully passing the certification examination.
Reinstatement of credentials lapsed more than 3 years ago
If your certification has lapsed for more than three years, your file will be closed and you will not be eligible to reinstate your credential. You will be required to re-apply for a new credential, meeting the current requirements for the credential and all associated certification fees. Upon approval from the Certification Board and completion of the program requirements, you will receive your certification and will be issued a new certification number.
Procedure for Reinstatement of Credential
- Submit an Intent to Reinstate Credential Application to the DBIA Certification Department (email to email@example.com)
- Pay the reinstatement fee with the application
- Submit Certification Exam Retake form for invoice, payment and Exam Code (you will be provided this form after your Intent to Reinstate Credential Application is processed). Upon receipt of the Certification Exam Retake form and payment, you will be issued a unique ID to schedule exam sitting at a local Prometric testing center.
- Upon passing the exam you will be assigned a new certification number and a new certificate will be mailed to you.
