  2. Certification expiry date: The day three years from when your certification was awarded. Note – If you pass a recertification requirement, the expiration and termination dates for your certifications will be reset to the date that you wrote the exam.

If you choose to write the required written exam prior to your termination date, your new certification date is the date you pass the exam. You must write the required recertification exam prior to your termination date to keep your certification active and maintain your original certification ID.

If you automatically renew your certification, your new certification date is effective on the date that you meet the automatic renewal requirement. You can automatically renew at any time prior to your certification termination date (which is 6 months after your certification expiration date). Your certification will remain active, and you will maintain your original certification ID.
