Membership Fee Blog :
To continue the development and value of EC-Council certification credentials and the continued support of its membership community, EC-Council has implemented a plan that requires the annual payment of certification maintenance fees in line with standard industry practices.
There are 4 types of membership fees as mentioned below:
|ECE Certifications||$ 80|
|Non-ECE Certifications||$ 20|
All certified members are required to pay the annual membership fee which is valid for one year.
Annual membership fees are payable in the member’s Aspen account, certificate area. You will see instructions on how you can pay here if your membership fee is due.
Membership fees are charged by membership and not by number of certifications held; the member will pay a single membership fee as indicated in the member’s Aspen account.
Will a member be requested to pay multiple annual membership fees, if he owns more than one account in Aspen?
Certified members should not hold multiple Aspen accounts. Should this not be the case, you are advised to merge your Aspen account. This can be done by writing to us at [email protected]
Will a member be automatically recertified for the next certification cycle (3 years) if they pay the annual membership fee?
No, Recertification is subject to fulfilling the criteria under the ECE policy AND the payment of the annual membership fee as listed at https://cert.eccouncil.org/ece-policy.html
Will a member be required to pay the annual membership fee if their certifications are revoked and retired?
The annual membership fee is subject to a minimum of one active certification earned by a member.
Note: In a situation where a member loses his ECE certification due to revocation, but still holds a NON ECE relevant certification, his annual membership fee will be USD 20 in the next and subsequent membership maintenance fee cycle.
Please send your questions to [email protected] along with your Aspen account id details so we can help you with your questions.
Membership fees can only be paid via credit card
Note: Online bank transfers are not accepted at this point of time.
The process starts with receiving payment confirmation for the membership fee from the finance team. Post receipt of the payment, the first thing to check is the candidate’s ECE status and the due membership date.
