Important PeopleCert Update | AXELOS Certificates will Expire After 3 Years

As you are probably aware, all Axelos Foundation certificates for courses such as PRINCE2®, PRINCE2 Agile®, MSP® and ITIL®, currently have no expiry date, while Practitioner certificates usually expire every 3-5 years. This, however, is about to change.

PeopleCert Foundation certifications will have an expiration date

PeopleCert confirmed last week that from January 1st 2023 all new certificates for Axelos qualifications, including Foundation certificates, will expire after 3 years.

You can maintain your Foundation certified status by:

  • Retaking an examination before the certification expiry date
  • Attending additional course(s) during validity period
  • Collecting and logging professional development points (CPD)

So, after January 1st 2023, Foundation certificates will unfortunately expire if they are not renewed in one of these ways. But we have an idea...

What can I do now to keep my Foundation certificate?

If you are thinking about getting qualified in one of the affected qualifications, we recommend gaining your Foundation qualification before the end of this year. This way, your Foundation certificate won’t expire.

Action now will save you time and money later.

PeopleCert pricing will also increase

Prices for all PeopleCert certifications will also be increasing in the new year by 15%. Make the most of our 2022 pricing and earn yourself a PeopleCert qualification before the end of 2022.

If you have any questions about this change or would like to maintain your certificate before January 2023, speak with a member of the MKC Training team today so we can book you onto the next available course.
