The renewal of the approval will be confirmed in writing only and is only awarded to the individual and not to commercial entities. It is not transferable and can be withdrawn by the City Council upon non-compliance with the rules as outlined in the Terms and Conditions.

Approval is given for a two year period which aligns with the PE welding training. Approved welders will need to renew their approval every two years.
