FOA Certification Renewal  Online

All FOA Certification Renewals Are For 3 Years And Cost $100 US

Payment options

Pay With A Credit Card Or PayPal


Online renewal is available for those with FOA certifications (CFOTs, CPCTs and CFOSs) who qualify. To qualify, you must still be active in fiber optics and your certification must not have expired more than 3 years ago.

Renewal covers all FOA certifications - you do not need to renew certifications individually. You should review FOA renewal policy, terms and conditions or contact the FOA by email (info@thefoa.org or info@foa.org) if you have questions.

Note: By continuing to make a renewal payment online, you attest to having met the FOA requirements for certification renewal.

 I verify that I am currently active in the fiber optic/cabling profession. (If not, contact the FOA at info@foa.org for further instructions)

I confirm that I have read and agree to the FOA Certification Holders Agreement.


PLEASE READ ALL NOTES CAREFULLY!

Note: You must know your FOA Certification Number and Expiration Date to renew online. Many people refer to their FOA Certification Number as their "CFOT number" because they received their CFOT first. If you need assistance finding your certification number or expiration date, email the FOA at info@foa.org.

Note: we must have a permanent personal  email for your new online credential and renewal notifications!  If your email changes notify the FOA at info@foa.org.  If you are renewing for someone else, you or they should send an email to info@foa.org with their name, certification number and current email address for the FOA database.
 

Note: Your new FOA certification credential will be online. After your renewal is processed you will receive an email from certifications@foa.org that gives you directions on using your new online certification, including the ability to print your own certificate. For more information on FOA online certifications see https://www.foa.org/Cert_Online.html.

 
Note: You may renew up to one year in advance of your expiration date. If your expiration date is more than one year away, your payment will be refunded.
