If you have completed two consecutive years in the role specific to your certification and have a contract for the 3rd year with the same employer, then you need to apply to have the Residency certificate reissued with a 5-year expiration date. Here is the form to document this.
- Enroll in a Professional Administrator Program.

Admin ProCert Program. Contact the program where enrolled in professional certificate.
- Renew the residency certificate for five years. This option* is
available to residency principals and program administrators whose certificate
is dated, but who are not serving in the role.
