Certification Renewal

Having a current certification shows employers and customers that you’re on the cutting edge, with all the latest training and knowledge you need to get the job done right. Keep ahead of your competition in our rapidly-changing industry, and stop yourself from missing opportunities that require certified personnel.

RENEWAL OVERVIEW:

  • Renewal is good for two years from the date of issuance and is only $150.00
  • To renew, a student must be active in the field for at least 6 months in the past two years
  • TFS will grant a 90-day grace period from the date of expiration to allow those actively employed in the industry to renew their certification without retesting.
  • If you have not been active in the field we offer a refresher course online which can offset the absence of your field experience for a cost of $75.00
  • If you feel you require more in-depth retraining, we offer students the opportunity to retake any class which they were previously certified under for 50% of the course’s advertised price.
    • This would make the online material available for another full year following your class
    • You would not pay the certification fees associated with the course because they would be included in your renewal costs
