You must maintain your Level I credential until the first time you maintain Level II. At that point, maintaining Level II will also keep your Level I credential or Certification current. Both Levels (and Certification, if applicable) are maintained together, with a single application and one $75 fee. EXAMPLE: – Your Level I credential expires March 31, 2024 and your Level II credential expires March 31, 2025 – In 2024, complete the maintenance process for Level I– your new expiration date will be 2025. – In 2025, complete the maintenance process for Level II. – Your expiration date for both levels will now be March 31, 2026. – Each year going forward, complete the maintenance process for Level II, and Level I will also stay current. This will ensure that both credentials are in good standing at all times. If you also hold the BOC Certification, that credential will be maintained as well.
