Re-certification

Keeping you up-to-date with the Industry

Due to the constant changes of technology, standards and design methodologies, certified candidates are expected by the industry to have kept up-to-date with these changes and are therefore required to upgrade and validate themselves on an on-going basis.

The Benefits of Re-certification

  • Provides new knowledge and skills to bring you up to date with the very latest changes and technical developments within the sector
  • Ensures that you are aware of the latest standards and codes of practice
  • Access to the latest edition of program materials, providing you with up-to-date reference material to use whenever you need to
  • Provides certification of your status for a further three year
  • Allows continued use of your post nominal title i.e. Joe Smith CDCDP
  • Provides an updated digital badge

The Re-certification Process

CNet Training has designed and developed a simple online re-certification process. We utilize a Learning Management System (LMS) allowing students to log on and undertake the re-certification at a convenient time and place for them. The process not only provides further learning, allowing learners to update knowledge and re-certify skills, on successful completion it also provides access to download the program material detailing the very latest technical information that you can refer back to time and time again.

During the re-certification learners can receive support via an online forum (to liaise with others taking the re-certification) or directly from CNet Training – there is a link to gain one-to-one support if needed.

  1. CNet Training will contact you within 12 months of your certification expiry date
  2. Within seven days of purchasing the re-certification we will email you the log in details of our LMS system
  3. You can then work through the re-certification online study, module by module when convenient to you (ensuring it is before the expiry date of your current certification)
  4. Once you have completed the process, we will be in touch to advize you of your result and we will issue a new certificate and digital badge confirming that you are certified for a further three years.

We require all re-certification to be completed by November 30th of the third year after gaining your certification, it is available for you to take within the last 12 months of your 3 year certification period. But don’t worry we will let you know when it is time for you to re-certify and will give you plenty of time to undertake your re-certification.
