If your trade certificate (or a certificate of competency) has been lost or destroyed (for example in a house fire or flood), you may apply for a copy or duplicate.
Apply for a duplicate certificate / extract
Complete the application form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
or send it to GPO Box 320, Adelaide SA 5001. Your duplicate certificate will be mailed to you, usually within 3-4 weeks.
Note that certificates were first issued in the middle of 1967, so duplicates cannot be issued for apprenticeships completed before that date, although we may be able to provide an extract of your record.
Duplicate trade certificates can only be issued to former apprentices. Trainees can apply for an extract of their record using the extract application form above.
