Recertification Dates

Consolidation of Recertification Dates

If you have enough recertification units all recertification renewal dates can be consolidated into a single date. You will still submit Recertification Units (RUs) and a fee, as usual.

When your next certification is up for renewal submit a single application for all certificates, and document your Recertification Units (RUs). Once your RUs are verified by a member of our Learning & Development Team your certification is assigned a three-year renewal date. If you have more than one certification, and enough RUs (12-21 RUs depending on certification) per certificate your recertifications can be consolidated under a single renewal date. Date consolidation allows all recertification activities accrued going forward to be shared for all active certificates with the same renewal period, making it easier to maintain going forward.
