Recertification Keeping the credentials you worked hard for is just as important as earning them. To ensure you stay on top of the latest advances, and maintain a strong competitive edge, you must recertify your credentials every three years. Recertification requires that you participate in ongoing training and development activities. You will need to document recertification credits during the three-year period from earning your certification or from the date of your last recertification. Your continuing education, training, and development must be focused on the Body of Knowledge for your specific certification. Note: At this time you cannot pay your recertification fee online. You will be sent an invoice prior to the expiration of your certification. Email us with additional questions about recertification.
