"Effective immediately, certifications for process servers will become a 2-year certification instead of the current 3-year certification. Renewal fees will be different. All new certifications issued will likewise be on a 2-year certification cycle. If your certification expired on or 9/1/2017 and you renewed on or after 9/1/2017, the two-year cycle affects you. Those whose certifications were renewed 09/01/17 to present will receive an email from us with any additional information regarding their certifications."
