What do you mean 'renew' my Card?
If you have a Card or certification within your Wallet that is approaching the end of its validity term, you can review any upcoming classes for a Course on offer, or recommended, by your organization that upon the successful completion would result in the recertification of your credentials.
How will I be notified my Card is about to expire?
Trades Wallet tracks each card entry within a Wallet by its 'Issued' and 'Expires' dates and will alert the Wallet holder 60-days in advance of a card entry reaching the end of its validity term. This is true for both 'Public' and 'Private' card entries.

Within the app, you will be presented with warning notifications on your Home Page directing you to your 'Cards' tab.

Review upcoming Classes
If your organization provides in-house training, or if they have recommended training providers linked through Trades Wallet, a Wallet holder can view any upcoming classes for the relevant course directly from their email OR their Self Service app.
If you have expiring or expired cards within your Wallet, you will receive an email containing the 'Title' of the credential and the date it is set to expire.
If your organization provides in-house training, has preferred or recommended training providers linked via Trades Wallet, you may also be presented with upcoming 'Classes' for a course that, upon successful completion, would result in the recertification of your credentials.
