CERTIFICATION/RECERTIFICATION GRACE PERIOD:
We will be allowing a “grace period” for those re-certifying their CMLE and/or C-CAT certifications. This grace period is specific to those with certifications expiring in 2022 and 2023. If your CMLE/C-CAT certification(s) are expiring in 2022, we will be providing you a one (1) year grace period to complete your re-certification. For those who have expiring CMLE/C-CAT certification(s) in 2023, we will be providing you a six (6) month grace period to complete your re-certification.
For example, if you completed your CMLE certification in 2017, it will be set to expire in 2022. However, we are now allowing the grace period to extend to 2023. If you have any questions regarding this grace period, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any inquiries.
