Certification achieved

Three to five days after you complete all requirements, you receive an email notification. Then your status in The Learning Center becomes “acquired”.

If you renewed this certification through a recertification path, you will also recertify any lower level certifications you achieved within the same domain. Example: Renewal of ACMX will renew ACMP and ACMA. All renewed certifications from the one renewal path will have the same new expiration date.

If you renewed this certification by completing the Edge certification or the Edge recertification path at any level (Associate/Professional/Expert), this will renew all certifications you achieved at that same level and any lower levels you have achieved. Example: ACEP renews ACMP, ACSP, ACCP, ACDP etc. and any Associate level you already achieved. All renewed certifications from the Edge certification or recertification path will have the same new expiration date.
