Requirements for recertification
(refresher) training

Providing the training is of an accredited nature where the learner must obtain recertification in order to continue operating, the National Code of Practice requires the learner to produce proof of previous full training received, in way of a copy of a valid expired training/competency certificate, or copies of expired carry cards. Expiry time frame should be within three months. A valid qualification entitles the operator to receive recertification training in one day. If a valid competency certificate cannot be produced, i.e., the certificate is expired, full (initial) training must be scheduled over five days.

If you have any queries regarding the requirements and conditions of training, feel free to contact our skills development advisor for more information.
