The application for renewal may be made not later than 5 years after the expiry date of the certificate.
An apprentice competency certificate renewed in this manner shall bear an expiry date corresponding to the last day of the fourth full month following that of the renewal and it shall include the name of the employer who has furnished the guarantee of employment. It shall be replaced by a certificate which expires one year after that replacement where the Commission ascertains, in the employer’s monthly reports, that the employee has worked the 150 hours corresponding to the guarantee.
