This course–and passing the refresher test–is MANDATORY for the following groups to satisfy the continuing education requirements specified in the R2 Code of practices:
- R2 Lead auditors
- Certifying Body (CB) R2 Certificate Decision Makers
- CB Program Managers (if different from Certificate Decisions makers/auditors)
NOTE: This annual refresher training is not a substitute for taking the SERI auditor course. New auditors must first take the 3-day Auditor Training and pass the final exam before they are eligible to audit for R2.
Cost for taking the refresher test is $100 per person. The multiple-choice test will be offered to those individuals who maintain active R2 credentials and have passed the SERI Lead Auditor course. Continuing Education Certificates will only be issued to those who pass the test with a score of 75% or better. One re-take is allowed if participant fails at first attempt. Deadline for passing refresher test is December 31, 2019.
This course is also mandatory for Consultants who wish to maintain their listing in the Consultant Directory on the SERI website. The deadline for passing the refresher test is December 31, 2019. After the deadline, consultants who have not passed the test will be removed from the directory. The fee for taking or retaking the test after the deadline will increase from $100 to $250. Consultants who fail to pass the test by March 31, 2020 will have to repeat the SERI Lead Auditor course and pass the exam to re-establish credentials and be relisted on the directory.
