Annual CFCG certification renewal to maintain title. Includes renewal of CFMG title and NCGIA membership.
It is the responsibility of the member to maintain their CFCG by renewing PRIOR to the expiration date. If certification expires, a member will have to retake all exams, at their own expense, to earn the CFCG title once again. Certification renewal fees are non-refundable.
NOTE: Membership is REQUIRED for certification. This means that anyone wishing to take certification exams MUST be a member of the NCGIA. If NCGIA membership is not renewed annually, any certification titles that have been earned will expire at the same time that membership expires. To earn certification again in the future, membership must be re-applied for, and all certification exams must be retaken and passed with appropriate scores.
