NHNLA certifications are valid for three years. Expiring certifications* can be renewed by completing the recertification process:

  • Applicants must complete 30 hours of continuing education (a minimum of 10 hours a year since original certification) related to housing counseling, real estate, or mortgage lending. At least 15 hours must be completed with NHNLA courses. Please refer to our continuing education policy for a list of accepted sources outside of NHNLA.
  • After completing 30 hours of continuing education, applicants should complete and submit the NHNLA Application for Recertification prior to the expiration of their current certification.
  • Once the application is submitted, it will be reviewed and notification regarding recertification status will be sent soon thereafter.

*Expired certifications are not eligible for recertification. Applicants with expired certifications must complete a new certification process and retake all required courses.
