Keeping your SRAS designation active requires recertification every two years. Recertification is critical to maintaining the standard of excellence in the SRA field.

​Recertification Overview and Requirements:

There are two options for Recertification to allow flexibility and options for maintaining your Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist (SRAS) credentialing.

  1. Live Recertification course: Ascend President/CEO, Mary Anne Mosack, leads a one-day communication practicum titled, Making Your Message MatterParticipation and completion of the one-day practicum secures your Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist (SRAS) designation for two years.

  2. Online Recertification consists of:
    • 4 E-Learning Modules: On-line modules and supplementary reading affords students an individually-paced learning environment that can happen anywhere and anytime.
    • Deadline: The pre-reading assignments and practicums need to be completed within 30 days of your start date.
    • Recertification Practicum: In lieu of a final exam, you must complete an individualized practical application project for each of the two modules within 30 days of concluding the SRAS-recertification seminar. Choose any topic or concept that is of special interest to you and that has been covered during the recertification presentations. The goal is to make a very practical application of these concepts to your SRA program. (More details are included at the conclusion of the module presentations.)
    • Assessment: Completion of 2 recertification modules and the associated practicums will be required to renew your SRAS credential.
  • SRAS Recertification: The credential is valid for 2 years.
