After two years, they ask learners to be “reassessed” to prove that they still have the skills and knowledge in the units required by their roles. On completion of these reassessments (sometimes called “recertifications”) a certificate for another two year period of currency is issued.

In other cases units of competency become superseded and are then upgraded, in some cases you may need to attend the course again to get the be reaccredited with the current unit
