To demonstrate your “Compliance through Competence”, you must renew your Certification on a periodic basis. A renewal or recertification application can be received up to 6 months prior to the expiry of your certificate. Please be advised that it can take several weeks to process an application for renewal or recertification (if the application is complete), so candidates are encouraged to submit their documentation as early as possible to avoid any lapse.
CSWIP and BGAS-CSWIP schemes require the submission of verified evidence (signed log sheets) of work activities covering the certification period; as well as details of Continuous Professional Development (CPD). The easiest way to provide evidence of your work experience and your CPD activities is to update your logbook regularly. An easy way to gain access to CPD activities is to become a member of The Welding Institute, either directly or if applicable via the Registration Scheme.
Specific information for the renewal or recertification of individual certificates can be found via the links below.
