RCE POLICY


The RCCE Certification is valid for 2 years after which it can be renewed for each period by successfully earning the Rocheston Continued Education (RCE) credits points. The certified members will have to achieve a total of 100 credits (per certification) within a period of the 2 (two) years. The Advisory Board provides the overall review and governance for the RCE policy and procedure.

All certification related correspondence will be sent to the email address provided during the exam registration. If there is a change in your email address, please notify the Rocheston Department of Certification (RDoC) by sending a mail to [email protected] failing which you will be unable to receive critical updates related to the certification.

NOTE


The RCCE certification and associated credentials including the certification badge, eCertificates, RCCE certification logo, Rocheston Roxy Portal access and exam scores will automatically become inactive after the expiration of the validity period of 2 years unless the certification renewal process through RCE is initiated. Only the members with valid and active certification can be provided with the continuous product and service updates or releases related to the RDoC.

WHAT IS RCE?


To renew your credential for another 2-year period you need to update your RCE credit account with 100 credit points in the Rocheston Roxy Portal and submit proof of your earned credits.

SUBMIT RCE PROOF ON ROCHESTON ROXY


The certified candidates are provided with Rocheston Roxy access to upload/submit their proof of assignments under the different categories as explained in the Table 1: Break-up of the credit points.

Login with Cyberclass credentials to submit/upload your proof of tasks in Rocheston Roxy.

INSUFFICIENT CREDIT POINTS


If the certified member fails to meet certification requirements within the 2-year period, the certification and associated benefits will expire. The members must retake and pass the latest version of the certification exam to be reinstated as a certified member and avail their certification benefits.

REVOCATION


RDoC certification benefits are non-transferable and intended for use solely by the candidate who has earned them by successfully passing the certification examination.

If RDoC, in its sole discretion, determines a candidate has either transferred, misused or allowed improper access to his/her certification benefit, RDoC may invalidate the exam result and not reinstate the benefit. Any certified candidate found violating the RCE policy, would have their certification and associated benefits revoked. The candidate will not be eligible for a refund or any compensation as a result of such action.

APPEALS


RDoC has a transparent Appeals policy to help the candidates to ‘raise an appeal’ in order to reconsider or complain against any decision, recertification process related issues or assignment evaluation issues.

Members whose certification has been revoked due to non-compliance of certification requirements and policies, may send in an appeal form. The Appeal Form can be downloaded from: https://cert.rocheston.com/policies/appeals-policy/.

AUDIT REQUIREMENTS


Certified members are required to maintain sufficient evidence to show involvement in activities that earn you RCE credits. Certified candidates are required to maintain the evidence of assignments even after uploading to Rocheston Roxy, for random audit by the RDoC.

NOTE: The RCE policy with regards to Recertification and other requirements, is subject to change from time to time without prior notice. RDoC reserves the right to make changes as required in order to maintain the reputation and recognition of its certifications and credentials. The candidates need to check our website for any updates.
