All AXP experience must be reported within the required amount of time. To earn full credit for experience, you must submit all experience in reporting periods of no longer than six months and within two months of completion of each reporting period.
Experience reported beyond this eight-month period will be accepted at a reduced value of 50 percent toward the AXP requirements for up to five years after the date of the experience. After that time, the experience will no longer count toward your AXP hours.
Note: Provisions have been made for reasonable extensions to the two-month filing period. For more information on the reporting requirements and extensions, click here.
