How do I renew?

You must apply for renewal through our online services.

Before applying, have the following information ready:

  • Your Gas certificate number
  • Your current mailing address
  • Your email address

How to renew:

1. Log in to your online account and click “certification” on the left side column.

2. Click on “Renew” to the right of the certificate you’d like to renew.

3. Complete and submit a renewal application form.

4. Pay your invoice.

Note that you will be notified via email when your invoice is ready for payment.

What happens if I don’t renew?

If you do not renew your certificate but continue to perform regulated work, you put yourself and others at risk. These are the consequences of working with an expired certificate:

  • A safety officer may issue a compliance order, or recommend a monetary penalty
  • A safety officer may be authorized to stop your work in the field

You will also need to re-apply for your certificate if you want to be able to perform the regulated work outlined on your certificate.

If you do not renew your certificate within three years of expiry, your certificate will close.

What happens if my certificate is closed?

You cannot use or renew a closed certificate.

If you need to perform regulated work specific to your closed certificate, you will need to get your certificate re-issued. This means you will have to fill out an exam application form and provide proof of any eligibility requirements, as well as take and pass the required exam.
