The SBDA™ certification needs to be mandatorily renewed every five years to continue the qualification and keep the SBDA™ credential current. DASCA sends reminder emails for renewal and you can log into myDASCA dashboard and register for SBDA™ renewal.
Please note that no additional training or assessment is mandated for renewal of SBDA™. Certificants require to submit on their myDASCA dashboard, a declaration of their professional development and learning efforts every five years to maintain their SBDA™ credential. In certain cases, certificants may also be asked to submit documentary proofs to support the declaration they make at the time of renewal.
The decision on ABDA™ upgrade is usually communicated within 3-5 business days. The SBDA™ digital badge is issued within 2-3 business days of approval of upgrade and the SBDA™ credential certificate is shipped within 2 to 3 weeks.
