To become certified as an AK-CESCL, you must attend the entire two-day course and at the end of it, get a passing grade (at least 70% correct) on a written exam. The certification is valid for three years.
To recertify, you must repeat the process as described above or there is a shorter refresher course. To be eligible to take the refresher course, you must have an active AK-CESCL number and taken the two-day (16-hour) class or Refresher Class within the last three years.
The AK-CESCL course can be taken for Professional Development Hours (PDH). The course counts as 16 Professional Development Hours for the renewal of a professional license. To get PDH credit for AK-CESCL, maintain a copy of your AK-CESCL card (or a copy of each day's sign-in roster) and a copy of the course outline for your records.
