An upgrade is being made available for those interested in upgrading their certification to the new version. All students who have completed CSTS v3.2 between Jan. 1st, 2004 and October 31st, 2010 and have an ACSA registered completion certificate will be able to take this online course free of charge. The training is done individually and will take, on average, 1.5 - 2 hours to complete. Students who complete the upgrade course will receive a CSTS-09U certificate from the ACSA.

Please be aware that the ACSA will only issue certificates for the CSTS-09 Upgrade course to those that have a registered CSTS v3.2 certificate, as described above. If your CSTS certificate is issued by another organization you will need to discuss your access with them.
