Hi @Nicholas-Pineiro !
Great question and I can understand how it can be a bit overwhelming. According to AXELOS, you must complete 20 points' worth of activities linked to the product you registered with within a 12-month period. Five points must come from the Professional Experience category, but the remaining 15 can be earned from activities across the Training and Qualifications, Community Participation and Self-study categories.

Here's how AXELOS explains getting those points:
"One point equates to one hour’s worth of effort and you can record a minimum of 30 minutes, or 0.5 points, up to a maximum of 15 hours or 15 points. For Professional Experience, to gain the five points, you will need to list five activities that you undertake within your role and that link to the skills and behaviours expected of your role."
Once you have your digital badge, you will then have the remainder of your subscription period to achieve an additional 20 points. Remember it's £60 to renew every year (about $80-$85).
Best of luck and CONGRATS on achieving your ITIL 4 Foundations certification. Check out the ITIL Specialist and Strategist courses if you want to continue your journey.
