How to Renew Your CompTIA Certification

Here’s everything you need to know to renew your CompTIA certification.

Learn About the Continuing Education (CE) Program

  • Renewal Cycle: Your certification expires three years from the date you earn it and must be renewed before that expiration date. If you don’t know your expiration date, log in here.
  • Continuing Education Units (CEUs): Each certification requires a certain number of CEUs for renewal. You earn CEUs by completing approved activities.
  • Continuing Education Fees: CE fees are required for renewal and must be paid prior to submitting CEUs unless you renew by earning a qualifying higher-level CompTIA certification, passing CertMaster CE or a CompTIA Recertification Exam.
  • Multiple CompTIA Certification Renewal: If you hold more than one CompTIA certification, you only need to meet the renewal requirements for your highest-level certification. When you renew your highest-level certification, your lower-level CompTIA certifications will automatically renew as well.
