Effective January 1, 2011, Security+ certification holders are required to renew their credential every three years. Renewal can be achieved two ways:
- Take the current version of the Security+ certification exam.
- Earn Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) by participating in qualified activities, such as publishing an article or white paper, obtaining another industry certification, or attending a relevant conference or event. The Security+ certification requires 50 CEU’s per renewal.
Security+ certifications earned beginning in 2011 will contain the designation “CE” to indicate the certification is subject to the renewal policy.
Certifications earned prior to 2011 will retain the certification for life. No renewal is required.
Note: Security+ Certification affected by the DoD Directive 8570.1
Beginning January 1, 2013 the DoD will only recognize CompTIA Certifications with the “CE”designation as approved DoD Information Assurance Baseline Certifications. If your certification was earned prior to 2011, you must enroll in the continuing education program to update your certification as current 2011 CE designated individuals must do.
