A SAQ recertification ensures that the knowledge and competence of the bank advice correspond to the current status. Due to constantly changing customer needs and regulatory requirements, the certificates have to be renewed every three years.
In order to maintain the validity of your SAQ certification - which you have already completed in the form of an initial certification, e.g. as a Certified Wealth Management Advisor (CWMA) - a recertification needs to take place.
You must be employed by a bank at the time of recertification; have a customer book or be involved in it e.g. work independently as a specialist for customers and be in direct contact with them. All detailed information can be found at the SAQ.
In order to achieve the "Certified Crypto Finance Expert" certificate and the "SAQ recertification", you need to pass  a multiple choice test at the end of the course.
