Annually, you must successfully complete the Permanent Educatie program if you hold a DSI certification. Failing to do so on time may have direct consequences for both your work and your registration in the DSI Public Register. If you don’t pass the PE, your registration will be changed to ‘Candidate Certified,’ which means you no longer meet ESMA guidelines. This could also result in your employer needing to supervise your work if you haven’t completed PE 2023.
