According to an email released today from the BACB, in order to help provide some financial relief for our certificants during this unprecedented time, they will waive all fees for those applying for voluntary inactive status through June 30, 2020. Certificants must submit the Voluntary Inactive Status Application that pertains to their certification level; please note: Each BACB certification has different requirements for requesting voluntary inactive status. Please make sure you meet the relevant requirements for your certification level:
In addition, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent statewide shelter-in-place mandate, they will continue to operate remotely. They also are processing applications submitted electronically and responding to emails. If you wish to request voluntary inactive status, they request that you submit the application that pertains to your certification electronically to avoid delays as they are unable to pick up mail daily. If you must mail your application, they suggest you to use USPS (not FedEx or UPS). For all customer service inquiries, please contact the BACB online.
