We have not started using the certification features of Prime yet, but we are trying to imagine how they might be used.
Ideally, this is how we would use Prime to manage our recurring certification programs:
1. We want to initially certify someone today, using a course of instruction set up in Prime.
2. Now that the person is certified I want Prime to remind me in 2 years that the certification is about to expire and to recertify, the learner must complete a different course than the course we used for the initial certification.
This basically means that when I assign someone to a recurring certification program they don't have to take the course associated with that certification immediately but will be reminded by the LMS in 2 years that they must now complete the course to maintain their certification.
