2.What is ExpertRating's recertification policy?
ExpertRating's recertification policy is outlined below:
1. Recertification is optional, test takers who do not feel the need to maintain the currency of their certifications needn't apply for recertification
2. Certifications expire exactly one year after taking the test
3. Test taker's can apply for recertification by paying the fee and filling out a questionnaire
8. Upon renewal, a recertification letter will be issued to the test taker; a fresh certificate will NOT be sent
4. The fact that a certification has expired will not be mentioned on a test taker's online transcript or score report
5. If a certificate is renewed, its validity is extended by exactly one year, from the date of expiry or the date of being granted renewal, whichever is later
6. Three reminder emails are sent to the test taker before the certification expires. The first reminder is sent 15 days prior to expiry, the second is sent 7 days prior and the third is sent 24 hours prior. Test taker's who do not wish to receive these reminders can opt out of the mailing list.
7. Test takers are allowed to renew their certifications even after the expiry date has gone by. They will have to pay a late fee
8. If renewal is done after expiry of the certification, thereby leaving a gap period, there will be no mention of the gap period on the recertification letter or on the online transcript
9. Test takers who apply for renewal will be asked to fill out a questionnaire relating to their employment history and relevant work experience; this will serve as the criteria for granting/denying certification renewal
10. If a test taker's application for renewal is rejected, he/she will be asked to sit for a recertification test. The pattern of the recertification test will be identical to the test that was taken while getting certified originally
11. A test taker who fails his/her recertification test can take it again by paying a re-take fee[Back to Top]
