ETICS certification and license renewal

Starting March 15, 2021 one came into force Accredia circularSingle national accreditation body designated by the Italian government, which modifies the validity period of the qualification and the renewal methods. In fact, the validity of the qualification has been changed from 3 to 5 years and has been introduced the obligation of annual maintenance and training of at least eight hours to ensure adequate technical updating.

There certification has one pre-established duration and, in order to keep the qualification active, it is necessary to present renewal application before the deadline, which can be annual or five-yearly.

In case the professional must renew annually the ETICS licence, every year the candidate must present evidence of continuity of work and absence of disputes.

If instead the renewal expected is five-yearlyat the end of the fifth year the candidate must present a certificate of participation in one or more training courses for a total of eight hours.

For these types of renewal, if the candidate has all the documentation in order, but does not demonstrate that he has followed eight hours of training, is obliged to repeat the written exam.

To summarize we can therefore say that the licenses carried out by 3/14/2021 they expire for three years and expired in March 2024, while the licenses issued by 3/15/2021 onwards have a five-year expiry date and annual maintenance.
