    Neta Certs...why are they valid?

    I was just informed that the cert is only good for the company you acquired it at. In other words if I get new job...I'll no longer be a level 2 certified?

    Thanks

    From what I understand, you are correct. All of that hard work that went into that certification goes out the window once you leave your company. If you go to another NETA company you probably wont loose it but anywhere else and you are SOL.

    Who told you this information? I know of at least 2 guys who left the company I am at and went to another company and were still NETA 2 certified.

    Yes, both companies are NETA. I was told your NETA cert is good even if you leave a NETA company, but only for 1 year. So if you do not work for a NETA company within a year it gets taken away

    The company you receive your certification at has to update your certification with the main office every year, why your card only shows it being valid for a year.

    If you leave the company, and immediately go to another NETA company, they can file paperwork with the main office to transfer your certification.

    If you leave the company, and you don't go to another NETA company right away, your previous company can either keep your certification updated(which more than likely requires payment to the NETA main office) or stop updating it.
