Why do the courses and exams cost money:
Our administrative team and our Subject Matter Experts work very hard on crafting topical courses and exams to test your knowledge and application skills for one or more particular subjects. Our systems are cutting edge to provide online access with 100% uptime, and our cutting-edge security and processing features are significant investments we make in providing you the best content in the most robust and useable platform possible. The initial course cost covers your first-year access to these systems and the administrative work behind the scenes.
Why does it cost to renew my certification?
Your renewal cost, which is much lower than the first-year cost, keeps our administrative team and all systems on standby to help you on your certification journey. It also funds new research and content development for your current and new courses and exams.
