For all RETA Certification programs, Certification is valid for three years from test passage date or date of last three-year renewal cycle.
You must renew your Certification before the expiration date.
How do I renew my Certification?
What are Certification Renewal Requirements?
The Re-Certification Criteria can be found in current Certification Application Handbooks.
PLEASE NOTE: Before you can use the RCD, RETA must have an email address for you in their system (whether or not you are a RETA member). Email addresses can only be used once per individual and the system will not allow different individuals to have the same email address. If you are unsure whether RETA has a valid email address for you, email RETA Headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, and phone number, and the email you want RETA to use. (If you don’t have an email address, you can set one up for free; for ideas on how to do this, search the Internet with the words “Set up an email address.”)
How to log into the RCD and get started:
To log into the RCD, go to the website, rcd.reta.com. Use your email for your login. If you have not logged into the RCD before, click on FORGOT YOUR PASSWORD. You will then be emailed instructions on how set your password.
Click here for the RCD Website.
Once reviewed and approved at RETA HQ, a new certificate and card reflecting updated Certification (and expiration date) will be issued.
Make Sure RETA Has A Valid Email Address for You!
RETA will use emails to send both RETA members and non-members important news and information about your Certification. You will receive an email in advance of your Certification expiration date and emails will be sent when PDH documents are approved. You will also receive emails regarding CRES activities if you are seeking the CRES Credential.
