    • Request for renewal must be obtained by PTI within 3 months before (for renewal) and 3 months after (for reinstatement) the certification expiration date that is shown on the certification card.  NO Exceptions will be granted for late renewals.1  Early renewal might be acceptable under some circumstances.

Subsequent renewals (8, 12, 16, etc. years):

    • Register with PTI

    • Level 2 only: Continuing field work experience (25% of the initial requirements)2

Renewal Policy:
