Actually I’m saying it’s the opposite. The replacement came with a brand new issue date. A year later than initial. So it appears as though I have another year. For example. If I passed initial in 2018 and got a replacement in 2019, the replacement has a 2019 issue date. Making it look like I don’t have to recertify till 2021.Thats because they don't reissue a new card every time. And why they want you to keep the receipt of the AKT Passed Test safe. That is our only record of Recirtification.
The card you get initially is permanent. With the original issue/expired date
I’m not claiming that I magically have another year. It just makes it look that way. I had to check IACRA to see when I really was first certified.
