As an EMDRIA Certified Therapist in EMDR or EMDRIA Approved Consultant in EMDR, 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.
Starting three months prior to your expiration, we reach out to you directly via email with instructions to renew your EMDR Certification status. You will be alerted at that time whether your renewal was selected in the audit. Then you will be prompted to complete an online Certification Declaration Form and pay. We also send a mailed reminder notice one month prior to your expiration with similar instructions.
Note: Please keep your email and mailing address up to date in your EMDRIA profile so that we have the correct contact information for your reminder notices. To update your email and mailing address, please login to view your member profile.

Is your EMDRIA Certification expired?
If your EMDRIA Certification expires, EMDRIA may offer you a grace period of 3 months. After 3 months, our system marks your credential status as expired.
If your credential has been expired for 3 months to 1 year, you will be expected to pay a reinstatement fee, but you will not have your credentialing anniversary dates adjusted.
If your credential has been expired for 1 to 5 years, you will be expected to pay a reinstatement fee, and you will have your credentialing anniversary dates adjusted.
Please allow 3 weeks for processing once reinstatement materials have been received. Please only send submissions to the office one time by one method (scan, fax, OR mail). To reinstate your EMDR Certification status, please submit the following to the EMDRIA Office:
- Certification Reinstatement Form (click here to download or print)
- Certificate(s) of completion for 12 hours of EMDRIA Credits (continuing education in EMDR) completed within the past two years
- Payment ($175 for EMDRIA Members, $375 for NonMembers)
If your EMDRIA Certification has been expired for more than 5 years, you are expected to reapply in entirety. View the EMDR Certification criteria and form here.
