Certification Renewal Points (CRPs)

Your certificate demonstrates your expertise and knowledge. Your continuous learning activities help you stay relevant and updated with industry standards and developments. CRP certificates will validate that you have participated in continuous learning and staying up to date with industry standards. By accumulating and tracking these over a three-year period you can maintain your certification status with Aqonta.

Our certifications have different requirements for the number of CRPs for maintenance. However, all have a three-year renewal cycle.
