Credits can be submitted any time, after they are earned, during the recertification period.

If your application is audited, you may be required to submit proof of MSEC membership; keep a copy of this email.

You can only claim credit for the time you were employed by an MSEC member that occurred concurrent with your recertification cycle.

**Note: The online application “saves” your submitted information until you reach the full 60 credit hour threshold for recertification. Once you have “submitted” the full 60 hours, you must select the “Complete Application” button on the bottom right hand corner of the screen to fully apply for recertification.
