Why is it important to renew your certification?
In today’s high tech world, certification is considered proof of professional status and is often required for jobs. Employers often contact the FOA to confirm the status of a job applicant. Certification requires actively working in the field. If the person’s membership is not current, we confirm when they got their certification, when it expired, and that if expired, we consider them inactive.
How to renew :
Your expiration date is on your membership card. If you have misplaced the card, you can contact us at IMT COMPUTERS – we can check your status and process a new card for .
Be sure to give us your latest address, including e-mail, as that is how we send renewal notices.
How to reestablish FOA certifications if membership has expired?
Under 3 years :
If your FOA membership/certification has expired within the last 3 years, you may simply renew.
Over 3 years :
If your FOA membership/certification has expired more than 3 years ago, you have to re-establish your FOA credentials. You start by sending in your resume. We will either arrange for you to re-take the CFOT exam or if you are not working in the fiber optic field, we will work with you to sign up for a CFOT review class.
What happens if an individual does not renew after the 3 year deadline?
The FOA follows international standards for certification that require that we verify the relevant professional/work status of everyone we certify. You are either:
1. Active – you have remained in the fiber optic industry and have renewed your membership every one, two or three years. We will confirm your status to anyone who inquires about your credentials.
2. Inactive – If you have not renewed your membership in 3 years , we will inform anyone who asks that you took an FOA exam in the past but your certification is considered inactive – your current professional/work status in the areas in which you were certified is unknown.
To re-establish your FOA certifications, you start by sending in your resume. We will either arrange for you to re-take the CFOT exam online or if you are not working in the fiber optic field, we will work with you to sign up for a CFOT review class.
