Our certifications have no expiration date. We strongly feel that certifications that require “renewals” only serve to increase the profits of the certification providers instead of benefiting the individual.

Candidates who would like to obtain a more recent certification date can always reset for the certification exam at any time (often for less money than a provider would charge for a “renewal”).
