Recertification

Persons that attend our training schools and pass their examination(s) will obtain their certification for two years. Prior to the expiration of the certification, you will need to log into Formations Fike, purchase and successfully complete a recertification course. All resources required to complete this course can be found on the website. To maintain certification you must recertify for each product certification you hold. Failure to have someone at your company maintain their certification(s) will jeopardize the company’s ability to purchase product or to obtain or renew a software license.
