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 online exam costs 20 €, but for the Design, Manage, Project, Inspect * and Inspect ** levels, the first exam is free.
The recertification test may be completed no earlier than 12 months before the end date. The 5 years will be added to the original validity of the certificate.
If a certified person does not complete the recertification test by the end date, the certification will be discontinued and the person’s name will be removed from the list of certified persons.
- First year after the discontinuation is considered a “grace period” during which the certification can be renewed by passing a re-certification exam.
- Continuing certification after the grace period requires completing of all certification exams.
