                                          Certification Renewal Changes
           Several of you have expressed that you did
not apply for a certificate because you were worried
about the renewal requirements and your ability to
gain the needed ‘points’ to renew in three years.
Mr. Roger Adair has reworked the renewal require-
ments, the OkASBO board has approved the
changes and they are printed here and on our web-
site for your examination.
           Some concern was also expressed about
keeping track of these ‘points’ for three years and
how they would be verified. That issue has also
been addressed by adding an explanatory paragraph
(the last one below) in the renewal application and
uploading a Points Tracking Form on our website.
The form assumes honesty on the certificate holders
part and requires their signature and the supervi-
sor’s signature. Hopefully, these changes will allow
you and others to apply for the deserved certificate.
The renewal process has been expanded and simpli-
fied, I think!
           Go the our website,,
download your application, complete it and send it
to the office. Your certificate awaits you!
