Earning the Acquisition Specialty for your CDFM does not change your recertification deadline. Your recertification deadline will always be every other year on the last day of the month you initially earned your CDFM certification. For example, if you earned your CDFM on 4/3/2018, your recertification will be due April 30 of every EVEN year. If you later earn the CDFM-A, this will not change your recertification date.
