Please note: Prior to attempting an EC-Council exam, candidates are required to agree to EC-Council Certification Agreement terms and the EC-Council Non-Disclosure Agreement. Candidates should not attempt the exam unless they have read, understood and accepted the terms and conditions in full. By attempting the exam, the candidates signify the acceptance of the EC-Council Candidate Certification Agreement terms. In the event that the candidate does not accept the terms of the agreement, he/she is not authorised by EC-Council to attempt any of its certification exams.
What is the EC-Council Continuing Education (ECE) Scheme?
Once a candidate becomes certified by EC-Council, the relationship between EC-Council and candidate will always be governed by the EC-Council Candidate Certification Agreement which candidate must agree to prior from receiving your certification. This agreement is also provided here.
If a certified member earned certification(s) that are included under the ECE scheme, he/she will have to achieve a total of 120 credits (per certification) within a period of three years. If a member holds multiple certifications, credits earned will be applied across all the certifications. However, effective January 1st 2013, each certification will have its own ECE recertification requirements within its respective 3-year ECE window.
The credits can be earned in many ways including attending conferences, writing research papers, preparing for training classes in a related domain (for instructors), reading materials on related subject matters, taking an exam of a newer version of the certification, attending webinars, and many others. Qualified ECE activities must have been completed within ECE program’s 3-year window and must be submitted in only one ECE 3-year window.
ECE credits are earned on a per annum basis, between 1 January and 31 December of each calendar year. Certified members must register their ECE credits earned by 1 February of the following year to maintain their certification status.
