*Conditional Administrator Certificate holders have two (2) years from the effective date of their certificate to complete the 40 hours of required continuing education necessary for administrator recertification. Please note, after passing the exam, effective dates will remain the same as your Conditional Administrator Certificate. It is important to understand that the two-year cycle for obtaining 40 hours of continuing education units started when the Conditional Administrator Certificate became effective.
ACS has addressed program relevant waivers in our Frequently Asked Questions.
For Examination contact ACSExamInfo@dss.ca.gov.
On July 19, 2021 the Department will resume the Administrator Certification Examination online using web conferencing software. Thus, the statewide examination waiver and the ability to apply for a Conditional Administrator Certificate, as described in PIN 20-28-CCLD, is terminated effective August 1, 2021.
NOTE: A Conditional Administrator Certificate issued pursuant to PIN 20-28-CCLD remains in full force and effect until it is rescinded, revoked, forfeited, or expires, whichever occurs first. Upon the issuance of an Administrator Certificate, the Conditional Administrator Certificate is considered to be rescinded.
