How to renew the Certificate?
ERMA has a Continuous Professional Development (CPD)program as a part of our certification program for ERMA certification holder. The CPD is essentially a mechanism that will enable you to maintain your ERMA certification (ERMAP, ERMCP, or CERG), by participating in various professional development activities that will be converted into Professional Development Units (PDUs). These PDUs are issued by ERMA to quantify the professional development activities conducted by you, as an ERMA certification holder. This is also a great way to keep track and support your ongoing educational and professional development.
The PDU are required to renew the certificate. With the PDU requirement completed, your certification will be automatically renewed for another 2 years, starting at the end of your certification validity period. Certification can only be renewed if you have acquired all of the PDUs and complete the renewal fee of USD100.

Unfortunately, if you are unable to renew your certification until the renewal deadline, you will be required to take part in another ERMA assessment session in order to get your certification back.
