|Certification is a nationally recognized term by the private sector of voluntarily achieved standards. Certification is bestowed by a non-profit, professional organization to those members who have achieved said standards. It is non-governmental and voluntary. Certification expires on December 31st of each year and it includes membership.

You must either scan or take clear photographs of your credits and email them to the RIVTA email address: email@example.com Renewals MUST reach us by 11:59 pm on December 31st. You will receive your certificate via EMAIL, please allow 6-8 weeks for processing especially during peak renewal season (November-December). Please send all information (certification application, credits and payment) in at the same time. If you choose to pay by money order, we will hold your credits/application for 1 week (7 business days). If it takes longer than 1 week to receive payment, your information will be deleted and you will have to re-send it. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
