Certification expiry

Learn what to do if your certification expires.

It pays to keep on top of your certification credits throughout the year. However, if your certification does expire, you have up to 2 years to get recertified.

If your certification expires, we need to review and approve your recertification after you've earned the required credits. It can take up to 24 hours before you’ll see it on your education dashboard.

Expired less than 1 year

During the first year after your certification expires, the certification credits you earn go toward the recertification requirements for the previous year. Once you’ve earned 20 credits, you’ll be certified for the remainder of the current year until your expiry date. You'll then need to work toward recertification for the current year.

Expired more than 1 year but less than 2 years

If your certification expired more than a year ago but less than two, you'll need to make up the credits for both the first and second years. Once you’ve earned 20 credits for each of the previous two years, you’ll be certified for the remainder of the current year until your expiry date. You'll then need to work toward recertification for the current year.

Expired more than 2 years

After two years you’ll need to take your initial certification again to earn 40 certification credits.
