Reactivation

 

People who were previously certified may want to pursue reactivation.

When a person has been reactivated after prior loss of the certification, ABIH will send a letter to the Diplomate and publish a public notice on the ABIH web site.

It is ABIH policy that an individual’s original certification number will not be reassigned unless the person voluntarily surrendered or retired.
