PeopleCert have recently announced a new recertification and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program. Effective immediately all of their Best Practice Qualifications have a 3 year recertification requirement.
Where can I find my renewal date?
Which certifications have a renew-by date?
All PeopleCert Global Best Practice certification have a suggested “renew by” date that is within three years of the original certification date.
Will the 3-year re-certification apply to ITIL® v3 products, e.g. ITIL OSA, ITIL Expert?
Certification renewal requirements do not apply to ITIL® v3 certifications.
Can I renew a PeopleCert certifications by simply taking another PeopleCert certification?
To renew a certification, you must choose options within the same product suite. An ITIL® 4 certification will not be renewed by obtaining a PRINCE2® certification, but could be renewed by taking any other ITIL 4® certification, such as ITIL® 4 Specialist: Create, Deliver and Support.
Product suites are as follows:
Do I have to retake all of my ITIL® 4 Managing Professional exams to keep my Managing Professional designation?
What happens if I do not renew my certification?
If you do not renew your certification you will still be included on the Successful Candidates Register (SCR) and the Candidate Verification Service, but a note will be added to their record to indicate that your certification needs to be renewed to align with current certification requirements.
