Examples: If you become certified on April 18, 2011 in category 7 you will need 10 points by October 21, 2011. If you become certified on April 25, 2011 you are certified through October 21, 2014 and would begin accruing points on October 22, 2011.
Individuals certified on or after April 21, 2011 will be certified through October 21, 2014 and will begin accruing points on October 22, 2011.
