Update from IRATA with regards to certificate extension for Technicians – Further update will follow as soon as we have it.
ONLINE – TECHNICIAN CERTIFICATION EXTENSION
We are currently preparing an electronic process for our technicians to apply for an extended period of certification. As soon as this becomes available, we will notify you and place a notice on the IRATA website, with instructions for technicians to follow. This will be a temporary solution and shall only be in place whilst the COVID-19 containment actions prevent assessors and training member companies from operating on a normal basis. We will notify members as soon as it is determined that adequate access to IRATA training providers has resumed in specific jurisdictions.
We are aware that some technicians planning to upgrade to a higher level of IRATA certification may also have expired through no fault of their own and we are putting measures in place to assist technicians who find themselves in this position.
