COVID-19 Update

Thu, 27 May, 2021

As countries have begun easing their COVID-19 restrictions TWI Certification Ltd (TWI CL) has experienced, and anticipates further, an increase in demand for CSWIP examinations.  As such TWI CL has decided to extend the applicable dates within its COVID-19 policy to counteract this surge.

Any certificate holder who is due to sit their recertification examination between 30 June 2021 and 30 September 2021 can apply for a six-month extension to their certificates validity while they await an exam at their local centre. We remind all certification holders that they can apply and sit their recertification examination up to six months prior to the expiry date of their certificates validity. We strongly encourage anyone in this situation to make the necessary arrangements as soon as possible, to ensure they are not left without a valid certificate.

Please note, that normal certification rules and procedures apply, upon successful completion of your exam, with the issuing of your certificate. Your new certificate expiry dates will follow the same structure as in previous years. For example, for CSWIP Underwater Inspectors 3.1U, 3.2U, CSWIP ROV Inspectors 3.3U and CSWIP Underwater Controllers 3.4U your new expiry date will be five years from the expiry date of your original certificate not from the end date of your extension or from the date of your examination. For all other certificates, the expiry dates will comply with the rules of the respective scheme.
