What Happens When My Credential Expires?

Will My Credential Be Deleted?

In short, no. Your credential will not be deleted. You - and others who want to view your certificate - will still be able to see your credential. The main change to it's appearance will be a faded overlay, and a notification that tells viewers that the credential is currently expired. We do this so that it is immediately clear to employers, or evaluators what the status of the credential is.

Can I Still Make Changes to My Credential?

Yes, you can still make modifications like 'Add Evidence', 'Request a Name Change', or 'Change Privacy'. If you do make changes to your credential, remember that your credential will still appear with the expired notification until it is renewed.

What Can I No Longer Do?

You will no longer be able to add an expired credential to your email signature - as this will not communicate to viewers that is has expired. You will still be able to download a PDF copy of your certificate, but it will have a stamp communicating the date on which it expired.

How Can I Renew My Credential?

The best way to renew your credential is to contact your credential issuer directly. You may need to provide supplementary materials to them directly, and Accredible will not be able to help with that process. If you have to re-take a course for the renewal process, clicking 'Renew my Certificate' on the expired credential should take you right to that course website.
