Verification of Certification
ABAI issues written verification of the certification status of an allergist/immunologist for a processing fee of $75 per name, payable via credit card. Status will be confined to Not Certified, or Certified and either Meeting or Not Meeting Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Requirements. Verification is also available online. The ABAI will routinely report certification status of candidates through its website or by mail. Official verification can only be guaranteed by the ABAI.
Request formal verification by contacting the ABAI office at which time you will be asked to submit the appropriate fees.

Trainees must achieve ABAI Board certification within five years after successfully completing an ACGME-approved fellowship training program in Allergy and Immunology, which typically takes 2-3 years. For those who completed training prior to 2012, eligibility to sit for the certification examination will expire on May 31, 2017. If the trainee does not accomplish this certification, they will lose their status as Board Eligible and they will be required to successfully complete, in its entirety, a re-entry pathway consisting of the following:
- An ABAI-approved Communications Module
- An ABAI-approved Patient Safety Module
- The Allergy and Immunology In-Training Examination
- Evidence of 50 Allergy/Immunology-specific CME credits per year
Note: Participation in an AAAAI/ACAAI-sponsored Allergy and Immunology Board review course is strongly recommended.
Once Board Eligibility has been re-established, the candidate has 3 years to successfully pass the ABAI Certification Examination.
