For CWI's and SCWI's (3 and 6 year cycles):
The renewal process is an important part of maintaining your certification. SCWI’s and CWI’s maintain their certification by submitting an approved renewal application to the Certification Department. The application must be submitted by the expiration date of the current certification and no earlier than 11 months prior to the expiration date of that certification.
To qualify for renewal, the CWI or SCWI shall attest to having no period of continuous inactivity greater than two years during the previous three years of certification in activities described in AWS B5.1. This work experience must be documented in the Qualifying Work Experience section of the application. Resumes are not accepted.
A 60-day administrative extension period is allowed. During this time, certification will be considered as expired. Renewals submitted after the administrative 60-day grace period but within one year of expiration may be accepted for renewal; however, administrative late fees may apply. If all renewal requirements have been met, certification will be reactivated.
AWS may send a renewal notice, but if not received, it remains the responsibility of the SCWI or CWI to renew on time.
For further information concerning the CWI or SCWI certification renewal, please refer to AWS QC1.
For CAWI’s Eligible for Upgrade:
CAWI applicants whose scores on each part of the examination met the requirements of a CWI but lacked the mandatory (5) years' experience are eligible for a CWI upgrade provided that the CAWI status is still current. Please document any additional experience you have had since initially taking the CWI/CWE examination in the Qualifying Work Experience section of the application. Certification personnel will review the additional experience to ensure that the (5) year requirement has been met.
For CAWI’s Eligible for Upgrade and Renewal:
CWI upgrades and renewals can be done simultaneously. If you are interested in applying for a CWI upgrade and your current CAWI certification is soon to expire, you may apply for both the CWI Upgrade and Renewal at the same time. Your certification will be renewed for an additional (3) years at the CWI level.
