How long do I have to apply for Board Certification after I take the MTAC?

If you choose to pursue Board Certification, your MTAC Background Check will be valid for two years from the date your MTAC Application is approved. If you apply for Board Certification within that two-year timeframe, you will not be required to complete another background check and will avoid that additional fee at the time of application.

If you do not pursue Board Certification within the two-year timeframe, you are still welcome to apply at any time, however, you will be required to pay an additional $25 background check fee and complete a background check at the time of application.
