Automatic extension to qualifications during COVID-19 pandemic restrictions

Last updated - 25/03/2020

Given the other concerns that we all have at present, we have consulted with certification bodies, training centres an the OFTEC Scheme Committee and have come up with a temporary solution to the issue of registration lapsing due to out of date qualifications.

With immediate effect we have implemented an automatic 3 month extension to qualifications that were due to expire before 31st May. For example, if you were due to resit your OFTEC courses by April 5th, you have a grace period until 5th July.

You do not need to contact us, your account will be updated automatically.

We will review the situation on 15th May and if the current restrictions are still in place or further restrictions have been added by the UK and Irish governments, we will consult to extend this period further.
