Referral Fees

If you refer a candidate who subsequently sits for an exam, ABA Professional Certifications will waive your next annual fee. To submit a referral, please use the Certification Referral Form. To receive a waiver of your annual fee, we must receive the referral before the exam candidate submits his or her exam application and pays the exam fee.

Annual Fee Dates

You will receive a notice to pay your annual fee by email in October of each year. The fee is due no later than January 31 of the following year.

*The fee notice will be sent to your Certification Manager account’s primary email. Please be sure your primary email is up to date on your dashboard. We also encourage you to add a back-up email in the space provided to ensure that we can stay in contact with you.
