How long is each certification before needing to renew?

    I took the ACMA about 2 years ago? I was wondering when does it expire.

    The ACMA does not expire from what I can tell and is not a pre-requisite for testing on the other certifications. Since it is a free test I would recommend going over it again as there have been many changes in the last two years that you should be aware of.

    Sales Specialist (Partner-only cert) is valid for 2 years.  Technical certs are valid for 3 years.  For ACMA and ACMP, you simply retake the current version of the exam.  For ACMX and ACDX we are working on a written recertification exam that will be ready the second half of 2012.  If your cert has or will expire in that time (ie it is 3 or more years since you passed), you will have 6 months after the release of the recert exam to pass, after which your cert will expire.

    Hi Clench

     

    I currently have ACMP and ACDX. Would an ACMX exam serve as a recertification for both certs?
