Reinstatement of the CFLE Credential After Forfeiture

The Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE) credential will be forfeited under the following conditions:

  • Nonpayment of the CFLE annual fee
  • Failure to submit continuing education credits and the recertification fee every five years
  • For provisional CFLEs, failure to submit evidence of sufficient work experience at the end of the five year provisional period

Forfeited CFLEs may reinstate their credential by paying the reinstatement fee and the current annual fee. See CFLE fees for current rates. In addition, they must submit any continuing education or work experience information, and related fees, that would have been due had they not forfeited. Reinstatement is only available within five years of forfeiture. CFLEs who have been inactive for more than five years must reapply by taking the CFLE exam.
