Recertification SAQ CWMA, CP, CI, CCOB, PME

Once obtained, your SAQ certification is valid for three years. To renew your certification, you must obtain recertification by demonstrating that you have the required competencies, passing an examination, or completing apprenticeship, training or educational units.

At ISFB, we offer a pragmatic solution: the 24-hour recertification package.

  • Professional virtual classes: all modules are delivered online in synchronous mode (live interactive format) from our TV studios and via Zoom (or any other video conferencing software, WebEx, Skype, Microsoft Teams...).

  • Six themed packages: no need to read an endless map, just sign up for one of our packages and follow the selection made by our experts.
