You may transition your management system auditor certification to Certus at NO CHARGE if your current certification was issued by one of the bodies listed below:
- Exemplar Global
- International Register of Certified Auditors (CQI-IRCA)
- Professional Evaluation and Certification Board (PECB)
We will grant you Certus certification at no charge at the same scheme and grade as your current certification. Your Certus certification will have the same expiration date as your current certification with your current personnel certification body for up to 12 months. For example, if your current certification is due to expire in 6 months, your Certus certification will have the same expiration date.
What Is Required?
You must provide evidence of current certification in the form of a current certificate or official letter from the authorizing body. A training certificate is not evidence of certification. Invoices and receipts will not be accepted as proof of certification. The certification granted will reflect the scheme and grade shown on your certificate.
You must still meet the requirements for the certification(s) you select, which for most grades includes evidence of work experience, audit experience, and training. You must also pass the Certus examination for your selected scheme and grade. There is no fee for the exam. Please review the requirements for the specific scheme and grade you select prior to applying.
