Currently certified members will have to earn and keep track of continuing education credits, as determined by ATA, in order to maintain their certification credential. Certified members are given three years to accumulate 20 hours of credit.
All newly-certified members will have to complete one hour of ethics during the first period after certification. This requirement can be fulfilled by either attending a workshop at the annual conference or one that is available online.
An easy way to fulfill this requirement is by completing the free online ethics module at http://www.atanet.org/certification/online_ethics_overview.php.
