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.

All renewed certifications from the Edge certification or recertification path will have the same new expiration date.
