    I'm putting together a CV and have experience and achievements (award wins) that are six years old now. Is that too old to be considered relevant anymore?

    it depends.
    are they relevant to what the next job will be.
    My CV goes back to 1971//
    However you can't have gaps so..

    Are these qualifications relevant for the job you're applying for? If yes, then they definitely need to be on your CV.

    Depends on what they are.
    Nobel prize, yes.
    Egg and spoon race, no.
