The QCCC National Training Society (NTS) offers Recertification Programs for Non-Destructive Testing professionals.
The QCCC NTS has been approved by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) as an Authorized Examination Centre (AEC) for Recertification Examinations in MT/PT/UT at our three existing Centres in Edmonton AB, Brantford ON, and Saint John NB.
To assist our Members in preparing for recertification examinations, the National Training Fund and QCCC National Training Society are sponsoring practical workshops at all three NTS locations. These workshops are intended for Members and potential Members to refresh their technical skills prior to undertaking the CGSB recertification exam(s). These NTS workshops are at no cost to applicants currently employed by Signatory Companies.
NOTE: Non-union members are welcome to participate in our Workshop Program and can register using the Registration Form and paying the applicable fees.
Recertification is a process that maintains the validity of your NDT certification through examination. You are required to recertify your certification before the end of your second period of validity, approximately 10 years from initial certification or last recertification (120 months or less).
If you fall within the transitional period for recertification, you must complete your recertification process by your next renewal expiry date. Candidates whose initial certifications were obtained in 2010 or earlier (with a previous expiry date of December 31, 2015), 2011 or earlier (with a previous expiry date of December 31, 2016), and 2012 or earlier (with an expiry date of December 31, 2017), respectively, are considered to be within the transitional period for recertification.
As per NRCan, it is your responsibility to keep an eye on its expiry date and to renew and recertify it on time or to revalidate it if necessary.
