MTCS Certificate Renewal

All our certificates are valid for a three-year period. We don’t offer certificates with a longer life as industry changes are likely to affect how a certificate holder works. Recertification should be sought in a timely fashion.

Changes like:

  • Revised Safety Legislation
  • Operational Procedures
  • New Technology

These changes – and others like them – can mean that your knowledge and training are out of date, or that you are now carrying out new procedures you’re less familiar with.

Our recertification process is designed to account for these changes.

The renewal process is very similar to initial certification.

Candidates currently employed by a company operating the MTCS Competence Scheme can renew by submitting a Witness Statement.

This statement should be completed by their line manager.

Freelance contractor candidates must complete the ICA.

Similarly, candidates whose certification expired more than 12 months previously must complete the ICA.
