Maintaining Certifications in Salesforce Certification Release Cycle 2022

 

You must complete Trailhead maintenance modules relevant to your Salesforce certification(s) in order to keep your certification(s) current. Every year, one maintenance module must be completed for all certifications. You may check your certification status on your “Trailblazer.me” profile once the release modules are available, and you will get an email with all the information you need to perform your maintenance.
