COVID-19 Update

Mon, 01 March, 2021

Although vaccinations are beginning to take place around the world, it will be some time until we are all able to return to our normal pre-pandemic lives. However, as time goes on and restrictions ease, the demand for examinations will increase which may make finding an available space difficult. As such, TWI CL has decided to extend the applicable dates within its COVID-19 policy to counteract this expected surge.

Any certificate holder who is due to sit their recertification examination between 31 March 2021 and 30 June 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.

Certificate holders are reminded that they agreed to abide by CSWIP’s Code of Conduct when gaining their certificate; and TWI Certification Ltd (TWI CL) has a zero tolerance policy for those who speak or act in an inappropriate manner towards TWI CL staff. Breaches to this Code of Conduct will be referred to the relevant Management Committee and will be subjected to a ban from holding a CSWIP or BGAS-CSWIP certificate. Thankfully these instances have been few and far between, so we would like to take this opportunity to thank our certificate holders for their patience and understanding as we try to get through the final stages of this difficult time.
