Please note that ICC’s online renewal system is temporarily unavailable due to system upgrades in progress. If you need to renew your certifications immediately, please use the paper application; you will not be charged any additional fee while the online system is down. If you have passed a certification exam recently, there may be a brief delay in that certification showing up on ICC’s website due to system upgrades in progress. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Certification Renewal

Earning your CEUs and renewing your certifications is easier than ever! Log-in to check your status, register for courses and renew your certification. Certifications are valid for 3 years and must be renewed on or before the expiration date.

Beginning in 2015, 20 percent of CEUs used for an ICC certification renewal must be earned from training by ICC or ICC Preferred Providers. This percentage will increase to 50% by July 2016 through a smooth transition. Review the revised Certification renewal schedule and the FAQs about the Certification program changes.
