Your Letters of Participation and Wallet Card (with current expiration date) are both found by logging into your AAFP Member Transcript or your Non-AAFP Member Account.
Upon the Approved Instructor expiration date, your status will renew another 3 years if you have met teaching requirements and completed the ALSO Online Instructor Renewal Course (current edition during their status period) prior to your expiration date.

Self-Tracking Your Requirements:
**All original status expiration dates in 2020, 2021, and January 2022 – May 2022 were extended to 6/30/2022 due to course cancellations during the pandemic.**
