So why is recertification and tracking your activities so important?

In basic terms, the process of
recertification is a way to validate that an individual has continued to stay
current with the policies and standards set by a certification body, which will
in turn prove their competency over time, or at least since they were certified
or last renewed their certification. It also provides a means to establish a
clear career path.

Keeping track of hard-copy documentation,
to support claims of continuing professional development, is currently standard
practice in industries where members have professional certification that
requires validation and renewal. Could you imagine a day when doctors or
lawyers would not have to validate continued competency in order to practice
medicine or law?

Not only is the recertification itself
important, the tracking of recertification activities (education, professional
service, employment/professional practice) is equally as important for the
certified professional as it is for the certifying body. Not having a formal
plan or process in place to track ones activities can mean denial of
recertification, or delay in recertification, which could lead to work
stoppages, stress, increased expenses and in some professions loss of
employment.

Many individuals wait until the last few
weeks to cobble together their information from memory, which works in some
cases. However, for certifications with very stringent requirements it may
prove to be too little too late. Spreadsheets can be useful tools, but finding
a web-based system to store activities and documentation is recommended, making
the collection and transmission of those activities readily accessible.
