Are NAFEMS members automatically certified as PSEs?

Is PSE Certification available to non-members of NAFEMS?
Yes, both members and non-members can apply for Certification.
How long is the certificate valid for?
Any assessment resulting in certification has limited currency. When granted, certification is valid for a period of three years. It is recommended therefore that an up-date assessment be made after three years, either to reflect competency in new product or technical areas or, where applicable, to upgrade the level of certification.
Those wishing to maintain their current certification are required to renew after three years.
Is it mandatory to use the PSE Competency Tracker to support my application?
No it is not a requirement of certification that the PSE Competency Tracker be used. It is, however, strongly recommended.
As an applicant, you can register to access your own account on the Competency Tracker. You are strongly advised to use this and identify which of the competency statements you feel confident apply to you. This information should then be exported to a PDF file, and uploaded in support of your application.
