ODP Announcement 20-013 informs all staff who became certified during Calendar Years 2016 and 2018 that they are required to become recertified by December 31, 2020 in order to retain their certification. Access to the recertification materials will be available only to those who were certified in 2016 and 2018 and are due for recertification in 2020.
Recertification modules and the accompanying test are available in MyODP at this link.
Recertification applicants will have two attempts – 24 hours apart – to achieve a score of 84%. If recertification applicants wait until the end of the year, they will need to take the test on December 30, 2020 and wait 24 hours to take the test again on the last day, December 31, 2020. If a recertification applicant waits until December 31, 2020 to take the test, they will have only one attempt as the exam will close at midnight on December 31, 2020.
Becoming recertified is highly recommended for staff already certified. Recertification supports the advancement of quality management (QM) skills, knowledge, and expertise, because those who are pursuing recertification are given additional tools and a more in-depth review of information not previously covered in the QM Modules or the face-to-face class.
