RE-CERTIFICATION
Currently, once you earn Level 1 certification, you do not need to re-certify. To maintain a current, non-expired certification, you simply need to:

  1. Keep your membership current by renewing every year—view your expiration date in your USL account

  2. Renew your USL/NCSI Background Screening every 2 years after the first screening. Not sure when to do this? Check your expiration date in your USL account.
