Students must recertify every three years.  Students can waive recertification by enrolling into CompTIA’s continuing education for an annual fee.  Another route to recertification is by simply acquiring a higher level certification.  For example, a student who is A+ certified, can get security+ certified as well.  In doing so they not only obtain the Security+ certification but also renew their A+ certification.
