My certificate almost expires, do I have to take the resfresher course before or after the expiration date?

You have to refresh the course before your certificate is expired. This means that you have to train before the expiration date. NOPEGA and OPITO have a so called 3 months window. This means that you can come and train at FMTC 3 months before your expiration date, while preserving your current expiration date.

For example: Your NOGEPA 0.5A certificate expires on 6 July 2020, then you can already take the NOGEPA 0.5B from 6 April 2020. When you for example take the course on the 20th of April 2020 your new expiration date becomes 6 July 2024.
