Retesting vs Recertifying
Retesting - when one has failed a portion (either the written and/or performance portion) of the exam within the last year and needs to retake that portion to
Recertifying - when one's five-year period of certification has expired and they need to become certified once again. There are no designated procedures for recertifying. It is basically like starting from scratch. One must pass both portions once again to requalify as certified.
