BATs certified before January 1, 2019 have until December 31, 2021 to meet the professional growth requirement. Anyone that became certified after January 1, 2019 has until December 31, 2024 to meet the requirement.

Why wait? Take your professional growth exam now!
BATs can apply for and pass the professional growth examination anytime during their reporting period. There is no need to wait... a pply for your professional growth exam soon and take advantage of the benefits:
  • Less stress!! Pass the exam early and forget about it until your next reporting period.
  • Retain more of the knowledge and skill from your last exam and from training you may have already taken.
  • Have more flexibility in selecting an exam date and location.
  • If you do not pass you have plenty of time for additional practice or training.
Don't be stuck paying a late fee!
In November renewal notices were sent via email to all certified BATs. A direct link to the BAT Renewal web page was included, so all you have to do is click and pay by credit or debit card (Visa or MasterCard accepted). Payment by check, cash, or money order is not accepted. Renewal notices are sent as a reminder, but are not required in order to pay your renewal.

Be sure to pay by January 21st, 2020 in order to avoid the late fee!
