• CCST® Recertification

    ISA Certified Control System Technician® (CCST®) certification is a mark of career excellence that affirms your commitment to quality and demonstrates your expertise and knowledge of state of the practice. Most important, it is acceptance and recognition from your peers.

    The CCST program requires that you recertify every three years to maintain your certification. The purpose of recertifying is to ensure that as a CCST-certified control system technician you maintain the same level of knowledge originally demonstrated when you passed the written examination. If you do not recertify within four (4) months after your expiration date, your certification is considered lapsed and you must reapply and retest.

    When do I have to recertify?

    To keep your CCST certification active complete the recertification form and pay fee 60 days before your expiration date. Click on the below link to access the form and fee.

    You will receive notices (these may come in the form of mail, email, and phone) from ISA when your recertification date approaches, but it is your responsibility to submit your recertification on time. Your certification expires on the date printed on your certificate. Make sure to keep your contact information up-to-date in your ISA account.
