Anesthesiology Assistant Renewal

Requirements

Anesthesiology assistants must renew their licenses every year within 30 days of their birthday. Failure to renew may result in the AA’s license becoming inactive. It is unlawful to practice with an inactive license. AA’s must also verify that they are currently certified by the National Commission for Certification of Anesthesiologist Assistants (NCCAA), or its successor organization.

Process

Anesthesiology assistants renew their licenses by completing paper renewal forms that are mailed to the AA approximately two months before their birthday.

Fees

The annual renewal fee for anesthesiology assistants is $125. Anesthesiology assistants who fail to renew within 30 days of their birthday must pay a late fee of $25 in addition to the required renewal fee.

CME

Anesthesiologist Assistants shall complete at least 40 hours of continuing medical education (CME) as required by the National Commission for Certification of Anesthesiologist Assistants (NCCAA), or its successor organization, for every two year period.  CME documentation must be available for inspection by the Board or an agent of the Board upon request.
