Once certified, PFMMs must pay the active participant fee every year and complete a qualifying maintenance event every 24 months in order to maintain an active, certified status. Qualifying maintenance events include any NAMIC in-person event and the PFMM Virtual Module. Please note, the virtual module can only be used as maintenance one time per virtual module update. In the event that a PFMM is not able to complete a qualifying maintenance event before expiration, a grace period may be purchased for $125. Each person is allowed a maximum of two grace periods throughout the life of his/her certification. If you would like NAMIC to enact a grace period for you, please submit a grace period request form with payment.
