We encourage students to periodically renew certification in order to reflect updates in the product platforms. You can use your certification as exemption from K–12 Core instructor-led prerequisite courses for a full three years after certification date.

No Course Requirement

However, if you feel you possess skills and knowledge strong enough to pass an exam, we encourage you to take the exam without taking the recommended courses.
