Validity and recognition
Your B-SCC, SOS-SCC or SIS-SCT diploma is valid for ten years. You must sit a re-examination at the end of this period. You will need to keep an eye on the expiry date; the record of your diploma in the Central Diploma Register states the expiry date. Your entry in the Central Diploma Register determines the validity of your diploma.
Your diploma is usually also valid in Belgium, Germany, France and Austria. Your principal ultimately decides whether your diploma is valid.
