Due to the uncertainty of the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and current limitations on the provision of testing services, we submitted a request to the Engineering and Inspection Division of Service NL for an extension on welder certification.
We are pleased to report that Service NL has granted our request for a 3 month extension to pressure welders’ continuity until August 1, 2020. This means that any pressure welder who completes a permitted job will qualify to have their continuity extended for up to 9 months or until August 1st, whichever comes first. Extensions will be evaluated on a case by case basis through the normal job permitting process.
The CWB group has also issued an update with allowances during this time. Click here to visit their website for more information.
