PeopleCert Certification Renewal Guidance:

From 15 January 2023, there will be two renewal paths available to candidates:

  • Retake the same exam: Candidates can renew their certification through re-taking their original exam before the renewal date.
  • Take further courses and certifications: Candidates can renew their certification by attending another course and taking an exam within the same product suite before the renewal date.

From March 2023, a third renewal path will be available to candidates:

  • Collect and log CPD points: Candidates can renew their certification through collecting and logging CPD points, more details will follow in January.

Candidates who do not renew 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 their certification needs to be renewed to align with current certification requirements.
