CSEIP Recertification Program
In March 2017, the Secure Technology Alliance began offering a recertification program for CSEIP recipients. Recertification extends the value of the CSEIP certification by demonstrating that the CSEIP certificant is current with new technologies approved by GSA for implementing ePACS systems and refreshes knowledge of the best practices for design and implementation of government security solutions.

Benefits of Recertification
Recertification provides confirmation to industry colleagues, business partners and potential customers that the certificant:

  • Maintains competency and has the necessary working understanding of Federal E-PACS system requirements, system design, engineering and life cycle disciplines covered under the CSEIP certification
  • Is proven to possess continued eligibility to participate in contracts serving Federal E-PACS project

Recertification Duration
The CSEIP certification is valid for two (2) calendar years, in line with federal agency requirements, and the recertification extends that for another two years.  CSEIPs who completed their certifications in 2014 and 2015 must complete their recertification in 2017.

Upcoming Recertification Dates
