Renew Your Certification

Show your commitment to your patients and your career. Keep your NHA certification current.

Certification can help improve opportunities to secure better jobs, improve pay and career advancement. As the healthcare industry grows, more and more states are requiring certification from allied health professionals. It’s smart - and sometimes required - to stay certified.

Your NHA certification must be renewed every 2 years to stay current.

Once you've renewed, you’ll receive a new NHA certificate and ID card.
