CTS certifications are awarded for a period of three years. To maintain your certification, you must complete minimum levels of continuing education during each three-year period and must reaffirm your commitment to the CTS Code of Ethics and Conduct. This ensures that the CTS program meets the ISO/IEC/17024:2012 accreditation requirements as administered by ANSI in the U.S.
The Certified Technology Specialist certification must be renewed every three years. My CTS is now valid until Feb 28, 2021. Renewal requires 30 renewal units in the form of extra-curricular trainings, webinars, trade classes and such. To my delight I was able to more than fulfill this requirement as I'm sponging up every possible opportunity. The AV industry is fast-paced so it's my intention to become saturated with as much exposure as possible. Certification Renewal Maintain Your Advantage: Renew Your CTS Credential
