The RVDA-RVIA Service Technician Certifications are valid for 5 years.
Certified and Master Certified technicians must recertify every five years. The expiration date is printed on the technician’s wallet card and certificate. Certification can be renewed by utilizing training and meeting the employment requirement over the certification period or by taking the certification test again.
