Under the new Grant Administrator Certification and Continuing Education (CE) policy that was effective as of March 15, 2018, a certified Grant Administrator must complete six (6) CE credits each year to be able to renew their certification. Two of the six credits must be an OCRA GA Update Training course. The remaining credits can be earned by participation at OCRA approved events.
