Certification No Longer Requiring Renewal
The Certified Assistant Guide (CAG) Certification will no longer require renewal as of January 1, 2016.
Certification Still Requiring Renewal
CWG, CSG, CWI, and CWIT will still be required to renew their certification every year.
Certification Cards No Longer Including Expiry Date
Certification cards will no longer include an expiry date, and each member certification status will now be verifiable directly through PAWGI directly.
Documentation No Longer Automatically Required on Renewal
Members renewing their certification will no longer be required to automatically submit supporting documentation. Instead, PAWGI will randomly audit the renewal of a given percentage of members every year in order to verify compliance.
Renewal Available on Mobile
Online Renewal is now mobile-friendly and can therefore be submitted from a smart phone or other mobile device.
