Confirmation & Revalidation

AS/NZS 2980.2018 Certification is valid for up to 3 years’ subject to 6 monthly confirmations by a responsible person (employer / welding coordinator / examiner or examining body). This means the welder is observed welding as per the welding procedure given on the welder test data sheet. At the end of the 3 year period certification must be re-validated by an Approved Examiner (Welding Academy).

Why is it Revalidated

The reason for the 6 month re-validation is to ensure the welder is regularly welding to that procedure during their regular employment.
