New Certification Policy - Longer time between renewals!


Recommended Posts

Does this apply retroactively? For example, I certified in 2013. Does this mean I'm in the clear until 2017? Or do I still have to recertify in 2015 since I took the exam before the change in policy? The white paper doesn't state either way.

 

Retroactive makes the most sense, but since this is Certifications we're talking about, I don't want to assume anything.

Maybe some will never need to take a physical, on-site test again...

 

Certified professionals can recertify and maintain their certification status by participating and completing approved activities that earn and accumulate points redeemable towards recertification. For information on recertifying with points, click here to download the full policy. 

 

Klout, anyone?

My understanding is as follows:

 

If your certification was "active" (not suspended) on March 3rd/4th, it will be extended.  As crossrulz said, contact NI if you have any questions.

Sounds good, thanks for the info, guys! I already sent Certifications an e-mail; I expect a positive response. Looks like I can slack on the recert worries for a while.

EDIT: NI confirmed that I'm set until 2017. Score.
