Don’t let your RST credential expire! The RST credential is a five-year certification. To maintain the credential, RSTs must recertify every five years or risk suspension of their RST certification. The ABSM conducts random audits as part of the recertification process. Cases which may appear to have false or misleading information could result in revocation of the credential. The ABSM will continue to offer RST recertification through 2032, when it will permanently sunset the RST credential.
