BAS Assessor Certification is valid for two years and may be renewed through a recertification process. Recertification is also valid for a two year period and can be renewed once.
BAS ASSESSOR INITIAL RECERTIFICATION
2 years after certification | cost: $200
Complete the BAS Recertification Module with a passing score. Within one month prior to their certification expiration date, assessors must email PAS.BAS@nl.edu to request access to the recertification module (if it has not already been emailed to you), complete the module, and pass the recertification test with a reliability score of 85% or higher. Assessors can expect to receive information about their recertification status within two weeks. If an assessor does not receive a score of 85% or higher they may retake the test once within one week of their status notification. If they do not pass the second attempt, assessors have the option of completing a BAS assessment and submitting for review (a McCormick Center Professional Learning team member will contact them with more details if this occurs).
BAS ASSESSOR SECOND RECERTIFICATION
4 years after certification | cost: $200
Within four months prior to your recertification expiration date, conduct one BAS assessment and send original BAS Books of the completed assessment along with the other required forms to the McCormick Center. Within eight weeks you will receive feedback and a recertification decision. Register here for this option.
BAS ASSESSOR THIRD RECERTIFICATION
6 years after certification
After six years as a certified BAS assessor, in order to maintain certification, you must attend BAS Reliability Training and meet the requirements of certification.
