Complete the recertification requirements below during your eligibility window to renew your certification and retain your professional designation. You can view your certification status, dates, and exam results from the Student Portal.
Three key dates to remember
Please keep these important dates in mind and organize your recertification activities around them:
- Certification date: The day your certification was awarded.
- Certification expiry date: The day your certification was awarded three years ago. Note - If you pass a recertification requirement, your certifications' expiration and termination dates will reset to the date that you wrote the exam.
- Certification termination date: The day your certification terminates if you do not successfully complete the recertification requirements within 6 months after your expiry date.
To maintain active certification status, you must successfully pass one of the recertification exams below before the certification termination date.
