Will my certification expire if I do not renew my annual subscription?

While your certificate of completion would be dated to show when you completed the required courses, your certification itself never expires. You can look at CMI’s Online Training & Certification program much like you would the certification for a CPR or SCUBA diving course: Once you are certified, the knowledge and skills are yours, and can never be revoked. However, content marketing techniques, processes, tools, and best practices change relatively frequently, so from time to time it may make sense to “re-certify” to keep your skills as current as possible.
