Note:

All LIA recertification classes are held during the months of October - January every year. We set these classes around the same time each and every year so that your deadline for taking the class (printed on your license) will match when we offer classes. There's not much we can do If you take a class from a different provider during a different time of year and now require recertification in the middle of the summer season. 

Did you miss our recertification opportunities but don't want to wait until the Fall? Please call LDAF or email LIA at geauxLIA@gmail.com with your name and contact information. We will keep a list and let you know if we hold a special class outside of the fall/winter months. 

The best way to streamline communications about these opportunities is by becoming an LIA member. By doing so, you will receive an email notification when new recertification classes are scheduled on this website. You will also receive a quarterly 4-page newsletter that provides class details as they are known.  We appreciate your understanding on this matter.
