Recertification Blackout
There will be a recertification blackout from June 19 through September 1. You will not be able to apply for recertification or add contact hours. MSNCB will consider your certification to be active even if your certification expiration date occurs during the blackout. Your certification expiration date will be extended past September 1 to account for the delay. This blackout is in support of a data migration for MSNCB's transition to a new management company on July 1, 2023. See the FAQ below.
