ICAPGen requires each Accredited Genealogist® professional to renew his or her accreditation every five years. The purpose of renewal is to assure that each AG® professional is keeping current with available sources and research techniques in the area of accreditation under renewal, including familiarity with new electronic and digital resources. This renewal process also ensures that each Accredited Genealogist professional is sustaining the high ethical and professional standards associated with ICAPGen.
ICAPGen will contact each AG professional by email or letter one year prior to the five-year anniversary of his or her accreditation, with follow-up reminders at six and three months before expiration. Renewal instructions will be included with the reminder.
Please note that the requirements for renewing have changed as per a decision made by the ICAPGen Board in February 2009. Additional time may now be required to complete the necessary requirements.
Please note the following:
Effective March 17, 2017 all AG renewals must be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
