Certification Renewals

Effective 1/1/2017, all IKECA Certifications will be due to renew on June 1st. When you or an employee are renewing IKECA Certification, the appropriate renewal payment and CEUs (continuing education units) must be submitted.

  • First-Time Renewals: The requirements for the first renewal cycle for a newly certified individual would depend on the date the certification exam was successfully passed.
  • Standard Renewals: The standard renewal requirements apply to certifications after the first renewal in each subsequent cycle

To renew your CECT, CECS, or CESI certification, please submit the appropriate amount of CEUs as well as the renewal fee. Renewal is the responsibility of the certified individual. Once renewed, your certification will follow the standard renewal requirements. Individuals who do not earn the required CEUs will be required to retake the examination at full cost in order to maintain certification. Retaking and passing the exam can be used in lieu of submitting CEUS.

In accordance with IKECA’s privacy policy and in observance of best practices relating to certification, IKECA will mail original Certification Certificates and ID cards to the attention of the Certificate Holder at their address of record. It is the sole responsibility of the Certificate Holder to provide proof of their credential to their employer of record as necessary. This applies to certificates and ID cards initially issued upon successful completion of the certification exam and those issued upon subsequent certification renewals. For this reason, it is imperative that the Certificate Holder informs IKECA of any change of Employer, address and/or contact information as soon as possible. In the event that the candidate requires a duplicate certificate or ID card to be sent directly to their employer of record, the candidate must complete and submit, with applicable additional payment, a Certificate and/or ID Card Replacement Request form with their initial exam application or renewal requirements.
