Successful Renewals by Nine AG® Professionals

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 is sustaining the high ethical and professional standards associated with ICAPGen.

A successful renewal involves reporting on one’s genealogical activities over the five year period, and completion of a 3-5 page research report for the area of accreditation.

If your New Year’s resolution for 2016 was to begin the process of accreditation, then you may be interested to know the application deadline for the second quarter testing cycle is April 2nd–six weeks from now. The ICAPGen℠ website has links to the online application and preparation tools, including ICAPGen study groups to help you with your submission.
