There is no expiration on a certification. Candidates are encouraged to re-certify when an updated exam is released, to validate their skills on the latest technology.
There is a 4-6 week delay from date of exam to update candidate’s Magento account. If after this time the candidate’s Magento account is not updated, then the candidate mistakenly provided a Magento account ID different from their personal Magento account ID, or provided an email address different than that which is associated with their Magento account. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to provide corrected information.
Email email@example.com to request that your profile be made visible in the directory.
If your CITY/STATE/COUNTRY is missing from the directory, it means you need to update your billing address in your Magento account. (Your Magento account ID begins with “MAG”.)
Magento will contact you in this case, but you can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can link your certification to your company’s account on the ‘Certification’ tab in your Magento account.
