How can I renew my certification?
Follow the procedures as explained below.
Step 1: Apply for certification renewal.
There are two ways:
a) Go to your training center with your old certification and apply for the certification renewal in person.
b) Send an email to your training center with two photos; one of the previous certification, and the other of you holding your certification card. Please make sure the information on the two photos is clear without any obstruction.
Step 2: Verify the information.
After the application, the training center will check the certification information with you and help you with payment afterward.
Step 3: Settle the payment.
Please follow the instructions of your training center and settle the payment on time.

After the payment, UTC HQ will start to issue the new certification. When the certifications are ready, UTC HQ will ship them to the local training center. The training center will ship the certification to you afterward, or you can pick it up in person. Normally, it takes 20 working days to issue a card. You can contact your training center to check the status.
