Certification is valid for three years from the date of issuance. To renew a certification, the certified person must submit a renewal application to DEP 60 to 120 days prior to the renewal date.
There are two ways to renew certifications:
- Retake the category-specific examination, or
- Complete an approved technical training course in the certification category.
Department-provided administrative training is also required for renewal of certification, in addition to the requirements above. See the Training page for more information.
