How long do I have to complete my certification application after taking the exam?

If a candidate has failed to acquire sufficient points to be recommended for the certification for which they are applying, the candidate may be re-examined at a subsequent examination period and/or resubmit an updated application at a later date. Examination scores will be kept on file by the Certification Director for a period of 3 years. Applicants have 3 years to follow up and complete their certification application; after 3 years, applicants must resubmit the application and retake the exam.
