    There are two renewal options that you can choose to meet: ·  having completed and/or taught at least three college credit semester hours in the past three years that can be linked to WV Core Knowledge and Core Competencies. · having completed 45 contact hours of training in the past three years (15 of those hours can be Non-STARS training hours, the remaining 30 hours must be STARS registered training). If you are not able to meet one of the renewal requirements by your renewal date, you do have a 6-month grace period in which to do so and still be able to submit a renewal application. If it takes longer than the allotted 6-months, then you will have to reinstate your certificate. Please note once your certificate has expired, you are no longer considered a Career Pathway Participant, but a Registry Participant.
