Certification Renewal by Re-examination

To renew certification, CRCs may take the CRC Exam. To renew by re-examination, CRCs must complete the renewal application, pay the required fee by the designated deadline, and achieve a passing score on the CRC Exam.

When re-examination is the preferred method of renewal, take note of the following:

  • Applications for re-examination must be completed through your My Account page.
  • Certification renewal by re-examination is available for CRCs only.
  • CRCs choosing this option MUST sit for the next scheduled certification exam. The exam cannot be deferred to a future date since certification will have previously expired.
  • Online renewal applications are available approximately 4 months prior to the certification "valid-through" date.
  • For the upcoming renew cycle, those who wish to renew by exam will be required to submit their renewal application, along with the appropriate renewal and examination fees, via My Account page no later than August 31, 2020 to allow 2 months to process the CRC exam application for the October exam window.

Please refer to specific information regarding re-examination criteria and process as detailed in CRCC's Criteria for Certification Renewal and Continuing Education.
