Inactive Statuses

Certified Irrigation Designers who do not renew are considered to be inactive and are not permitted to use their CID status for professional reasons until they renew their certification.

If the inactive period is less than three years, renewal can be made by paying all renewal fees and submitting sufficient CPD – Continuous Professional Development points to cover the inactive period/s.

If the inactive period is for more than three years, the certification is forfeited and re-certification will require the applicant to start the certification process over from the beginning, including all relevant examinations.
