Recertify with a CompTIA Recertification Exam

Recertify with a CompTIA Recertification Exam

December 12, 2017 in CompTIA, Corporate IT Training / by Centriq Training

The CompTIA Recertification Exam Series bridges the content gap between the exam that you passed and the exam objectives of the most current release.

Overview and Eligibility

You are eligible to take a CompTIA recertification exam if you passed an earlier version and your certification has not expired.

What You Need to Know

  • Timing: Once you register for your exam, you have 45 days to complete it. You must pass the CompTIA recertification exam during your three-year renewal cycle.
  • Relevance: The exam must match the CompTIA certification you are renewing. If you hold higher-level CompTIA certifications, you will want to review your options to renew the highest level that you have, as it will automatically renew qualifying lower-level CompTIA certifications.
  • Documentation: After passing the exam, CompTIA will automatically renew your certification. You will not need to submit further documentation.
  • CE Fees: The CE fees are waived if you pass a recertification exam. CompTIA recertification exams follow the same policies as full CompTIA exams.

Below you’ll find details about the available recertification exams. If you need to refresh your skills prior to attempting an exam, the corresponding certification training is provided.
