All S2P certification levels are valid for 5 years from the completion of the latest exam. Passing the recertification exam will extend the validity for 5 years.

The re-certification exam shall be completed 4 to 5 years after the certification. Successful completion adds 5 years to the original validity. When the deadline expires, the certification is not valid and the person’s information appears in the Records of S2P certified as “On Hold”.

Even in “Ho Hold” the benefits of the certification service, such as the right to participate in update webinars, use the Inspector and Encyclopedia software, and also the annual fee for the service, continue until the certification is discontinued by announcing it in profile.

The re-certification exam is not easy if you haven’t studied much from the Safe to Play book and/or the Safe to Play Encyclopedia in the past five years. Some things have changed! We recommend reviewing these before the exam. Consider ordering and completing self-study booklet(s).

What is the exam like?

The S2P Board outlined that the level of recertification exam will be little easier than the original exam. The exam includes yes/no questions according to persons certification level.

Note that the questions in the exam are based on up-to-date knowledge. Therefore, it is a good idea to review the material from the Safe to Play Encyclopedia app before the recertification exam.
