For all RETA certification programs, certification is valid for three years from test passage date or date of last three-year renewal cycle.
How do I renew my certification? What are certification renewal requirements?
The Re-Certification Criteria can be found in current Certification Application Handbook.
You will use the RETA Certification Database (RCD) to enter and submit your PDH documentation electronically for your certification renewals (CARO, CIRO, or CRES).
PLEASE NOTE: Before you can use the RCD, RETA must have a current, valid, and unique email address for you in the RCD system (whether or not you are a RETA member). 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:
If you have not used the RCD before, click on Forgot your Password. You will need to enter your email address and then click on Send me reset password instructions, follow the reset password instructions, you will then be logged into the RCD. Use the email address on file, if you are not sure of the email address, contact RETA HQ.
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.
