PeopleCert’s new Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program is designed to help candidates stay ahead in the competitive labor market by keeping up-to-date with the skills and best practices to support their professional development.
This new program benefits certified individuals in several ways, including:
- Provides incentive to continue to learn and certify new skills

- Supports career advancement opportunities and stay ahead in a competitive job market
- Helps you demonstrate your commitment to upskilling to current and future employers
- Elevates your personal brand and enhance their professional resume
All candidates with relevant Global Best Practice certifications will be given the option to renew within three years of their original certification dates.
- If you were certified before 30 June 2020: You will have until 1 July 2023 to choose to renew your certification(s), regardless of your original award date.
- If you were certified after June 2020: You will have the option to renew your certification(s) within 3 years of the original award date.
Candidates that choose not to renew will still be included on the Successful Candidates Register (SCR) and the Candidate Verification Service, but a note will be added to their record to indicate that their certification needs to be renewed to align with current certification requirements.
Your renew-by date can be viewed by logging into your PeopleCert account.
Currently, there are two renewal paths available:
- Retake the same exam: You can choose to renew your certification by re-taking your original exam before the renewal date.
- Take further courses and certifications: You can choose to renew your certification by attending another course and taking an exam within the same product suite before the renewal date.
The product suites are as follows:
- ITIL 4 Product Suite: All ITIL 4 certifications
- Project, Programme & Portfolio Management Product Suite: PRINCE2, PRINCE2 Agile, M_o_R, MSP, MoV, MoP, P3O
- AgileSHIFT Product Suite: All AgileSHIFT®certifications
- RESILIA Product Suite: All RESILIA certifications
From March 2023, a third renewal path will be available:
- Collect and log CPD points: You will be able to choose to renew your certification by collecting and logging CPD points.
- More details on this path will follow soon.
Make a plan sooner rather than later to renew your certification, especially if you wish to renew by continuing on your certification journey. Keeping your certification current will ensure that you reap the benefits of certification as a way to validate your skills and knowledge, whether it be in ITIL, PRINCE2, MSP, AgileShift, or one of the other PeopleCert certifications.
Our Customer Solutions Team is ready to help you prepare for this new change and manage your next steps.
PeopleCert rules also apply to AgileSHIFT, MSP® (4th and 5th), M_o_R® (3rd and 4th), MoP®, P3O®, MoV®, and RESILIA®.
