As an EMDR Certified Therapist, you have committed to continuing your education in the field of EMDR by participating in 12 EMDRIA Credit hours every two years. EMDRIA administers an audit process which allows us to ensure that requirements are consistently being met each cycle without requiring everyone to submit EMDRIA Credit documentation for each renewal.
If you are an EMDR Consultant, visit the EMDR Consultant Renewal page for information about your credential!

How to Renew Your EMDR Certification Credential
Starting three months prior to your expiration date, we reach out to you via email with instructions to renew your EMDR Certification credential. You will be alerted at that time whether your renewal was selected in the audit. Note that you will need to click on the link in the email in order to renew your certification credential.
If you get a blank page with just the title when you click on the renewal link, that means you haven’t logged in to your EMDRIA account yet. Please log in to your EMDRIA account first, then go back to the reminder email and click on the link.
If You Are Selected in the Audit
You will be prompted to upload your EMDRIA Credits for staff review. Once your credits have been approved, you will receive a second email prompting you to complete the online Credential Declaration Form and pay the certification renewal fee.
If You Are Not Selected in the Audit
You will be prompted to complete the online Credential Declaration Form and pay the certification renewal fee.
Do you need EMDRIA Credits?
If you are in need of EMDRIA Credits, the Continuing Education page on our website lists current continuing education options that have been reviewed and approved by EMDRIA. The completion certificates should list the EMDRIA program approval number as well as the number of EMDRIA Credits the workshop was approved for.
There are two options listed:
- Event Calendar - Upcoming live events listed on the EMDR Education Calendar
- EMDRIA OnDemand Education - recorded workshops from previous EMDRIA conferences

Is your EMDR Certification Credential Expired?
If your certification credential expires, EMDRIA offers you a grace period of three months. After three months, our system marks your certification credential as expired.
If your certification credential has been expired for three months to one year, your credential will be marked as inactive but if you renew within this one-year period, your credential will be backdated. You will receive a final email letting you know your credential has expired along with the link to renew. Email email@example.com if you need that link sent to you again.
If your certification credential has been expired for one to five years, your credential will be marked as inactive. If you renew within this five-year period a reinstatement fee will be applied and your certification dates will be adjusted accordingly. To reinstate your certification credential, you will need to complete and submit the reinstatement form below.
If your certification credential has been expired for more than five years, you are expected to reapply in entirety. View the EMDR Certification criteria and form here.
EMDR Certification Reinstatement Form
To reinstate your EMDR Certification credential, you will need to submit the EMDR Certification Reinstatement Form along with certificate(s) of completion for 12 hours of EMDRIA Credits (continuing education in EMDR) completed within the past two years.
Only submit your reinstatement materials all at once either by email or fax. Do not submit materials separately or mail hard copies. Allow three weeks for processing once reinstatement materials have been received.
