What if I’m Certified Under the Old Standards?
If someone takes the Part 1 under the old standard, they do not have to take Part 2 within 6 months because that is a requirement under the new standard. In essence, the Part 1 doesn’t expire so they can take the Part 2 at any time. Once you take the Part 2 under the new standard, you will now be in the new process of taking the JHSC Refresher course every 3 years. If you took both the Part 1 and Part 2 under the old standards, then you don’t have to take the refresher program every 3 years.
