Certification period expanded

Here's some good news.  The PCIP credential is now valid for three years instead of two.

An email notification just came out:


Dear PCIP,
You may have recently received an email from the PCI Security Standards Council regarding changes in the PCI Professional Program.  The email outlined a change to the PCIP recertification period from two years to three and included a copy of your PCIP certificate.  While the revised requalification period has been approved, the email did not reflect accurate information.
Please disregard both the email and attachment.
In the coming weeks, you will receive a follow up communication outlining details for the requalification process and updated certificates. Please be assured our records are accurate and this issue has not affected your status as an active PCI Professional.
We appreciate your participation in the PCIP Program and apologize for any confusion.
Should you have any queries please address them to the PCIP Program Manager at pcip@pcisecuritystandards.org.
