TIEMS International Certification - TQC is valid for three (3) years.
TIEMS International Certification - TQAC is a one time Certification which can be upgraded to TQC Certification.
TQC Certification is awarded for a three-year period, with re-certification efforts required prior to the end of the third year. The TQC Certification Board will notify the TQC-certified person at the beginning of their third year, asking them to submit the TQC Re-Certification Form if he/she intends to maintain his/her certification. The TQC Compliance Board will then evaluate the TQC-certified person’s experience, activity, and education/training during the 3 years TQC Certification period, and, if they continue to be qualified, issues a TQC Re-Certification Certificate, or asks the candidate to take the TQC Re-Certification Exam. In the latter case, the evaluation will follow the same procedure, but simpler, as with a new TQC Certification.

TQAC Certification can be upgraded to TQC Certification when the candidate has achieved the necessary practical experience (Participation and Contribution) in emergency management.

The TQAC-certified person’s experience and Activity will be evaluated by the TQC/TQAC Compliance Board, and if fulfilling the TQC requirements, awarded the TQC Certification.
