Once completed, the certification is perpetual and will not require recertification.
Unity Certification – This certification validates your Unity skills. You will need to maintain a current certification, which means you will need Developer certification until the new set of certifications are released in May and July.

Are there costs associated with getting certified? – Unity offers a 10% discount towards the cost of each of the required certifications: CompTIA Classroom Trainer certification is a combination of costs for a computer-based exam and evaluation of a teaching video submission.
