NEW CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAM
The FRA Academy's Continuing Education Program requirements begin on October 1.

We have created this program for Academy participants to continue engaging with relevant education programs in order to maintain various professional designations from the Redevelopment Academy.

With this program, to maintain your FRA-RA or FRA-RP designation, you must complete 36 continuing education (CE) credit hours within a three-year period.

FRA sources of CE credits include the FRA Conference, additional Academy elective courses taken post-graduation, FRA Webinars, FRA Regional Events and teaching an FRA course.

If you do not obtain the required continuing education units required every three years, the status of your designation will be changed from “active” to “inactive” in the FRA records.
