MLIS Renewal Requirements

Once you earn the MLIS certification, you will have 24 months to complete 3-hours of approved MLIS continuing education credit. After the initial 24-month term, you must complete 3-hours of MLIS continuing education credit annually to continue using and displaying the MLIS certification.

Ways to Obtain MLIS Renewal Credit
