Certification Renewals

Effective 1/1/2017, all IKECA Certifications will be due to renew on June 1st. When renewing, 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 of 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 if the certified individual.  Failure to renew within 90 days of your certification's expiration date will result in a void credential. 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.
