CertTEC Recertification Requirements

  • CertTEC certifications are valid for three years from issuance.  Additionally as part of ISO 17024 Accreditation, CertTEC must demonstrate the ability to locate and verify the status of each certification holder so contact information updates are also requested at recertification.  The recertification requirement is on a time scale and involves three methods to recertify.

Where would I test?

How Do I Get Started?

Choose the certification that most interests you and fill out the “Request for Information” form and submit it to CertTEC to receive an email direct from the CertTEC staff providing you details on the specific area of interest you’ve selected.

Once you have that information and determine it’s what you want, you can return to this website and register and make payment for the certification examination.

You can always contact the CertTEC staff for more information and to seek answers to questions you may have.

We look forward to supporting your efforts to certify.
