Renew­al Pro­ce­dures: DTP Cer­ti­fied Instruc­tors should renew their cer­ti­fi­ca­tion every 2 years by Decem­ber 15 – in even years if you ini­tially got cer­ti­fied in an even year; in odd years if you ini­tially got cer­ti­fied in an odd year. You may renew at any time dur­ing the year and should do so now if you have not got­ten a renew­al in the last 2 years.
