21. How to pay my Annual Maintenance Fees (AMF)?

A PECB Certificate requires the payment of the maintenance fee. The annual reporting begins with the initial certification date.

PECB continuously notifies each PECB Professional to maintain their certificate(s). The notifications are sent several times throughout the certification cycle. The first one is sent three months before the annual certificate issuance date. The annual maintenance fee can be paid online through your dashboard, by logging here (, clicking My Certifications, and then the Submit AMF button.

Certificate application payment is non-refundable

The application payment for personal certification is not refundable.

This is due to the initiation of the procedures concerning the verification of the application, verification of the evidence submitted by the candidates, as well as the engagement of the relevant units in this process

Coupon Code

As there are fees for scheduling an online PECB exam and submitting a PECB certificate application, Partners will provide course participants with coupon codes through their PECB Partners Dashboard.

PECB course participants are provided with coupon codes, which depending on the event exam type, can be used for:

If the event exam type is paper-based, the coupon code is valid for:

  • Applying for the Certification if the exam is passed successfully;

If the event exam type is online, the coupon code is valid for:

  • Scheduling one first take online exam session;
  • Schedule one retake online exam session (if you have failed the first attempt);
  • Waive the Certificate application fee;

Participants will be provided with the coupon code via email from the PECB system, and in case the email is lost or not successfully delivered, the coupon code can also be found within the My Courses tab under the Coupon Code column.

The coupon code is bound to a specific PECB account and to a specific course. The coupon code cannot be used by another PECB account, nor for another PECB course.

How do I pay for my registered courses?

When you register for a course with one of our Resellers, please consult with them regarding payment as you will be paying them for the training course, not PECB.

How many days in advance do I have to pay to get a confirmed seat in the class?

It is advisable to pay at least a week before the class starts, however, please check with a course organizer.


PECB prefers to use PayPal as a payment option. If you face any problems with making payments, please contact us by dropping a ticket.
