Formulario de Recertification

Technological change is a continual occurrence that erodes the value of professional certification unless that certification is periodically renewed. Therefore, SCTE certification is valid for a period of three years.

Individuals with SCTE certification(s) need to apply for recertification within six months before the expiration date or twelve months after the expiration date printed on their certification certificate. A total of 12 Recertification Units (RUs) (21 RUs for DVEP, IPEP and BCE) are required to maintain SCTE certification without having to re-take the exam. If you have not earned the minimum RUs, you may retake the exam, incurring the cost of the testing fee and the renewal application fee. The RUs must be earned during the 3-year certification period.

Individuals who fail to apply for recertification within the appropriate time period will lose their current certification status and will require complete repetition of the SCTE certification process and payment of the certification exam fee.

SCTE attempts to send recertification reminders to certification candidates as a courtesy. The candidate retains responsibility for ensuring all recertification requirements are fulfilled prior to expiration of the certification.
