Renewal Requirements
The requirements for DER Recurrent training are contained in Para 803 (g) of FAA Order 8100.8D. The online training has NOT changed that requirement. For example, if you last completed recurrent training anytime in 2011 then you must complete recurrent training during 2013, i.e. before January 1, 2014.

FAA Order 8100.8D paragraph 803.g. states:
"DERs must attend a recurrent seminar every 2 calendar years to maintain their knowledge of the regulations and policies and as a condition for renewal. DERs may satisfy the 2 year requirement by attending a DER seminar in the calendar year it is due."
