ACMA Delays in Processing Amateur Licences

The WIA office has received a number of phone calls from WIA Exam Service assessment candidates concerned about the delay in the processing of their applications for certificates of proficiency and apparatus licences by ACMA after the WIA has forwarded them to ACMA.

The WIA has been advised by Alan Jordan of ACMA that as a result of the need to train new staff, and some new responsibilities given to those staff, the turnaround time for issuing amateur licences has been extended.

However, it is ACMA�s aim to achieve a two-week turnaround time for issuing amateur licences.

While the WIA will continue to aim to forward the applications and certificates within 5 working days after their receipt from the Assessors, Assessors and candidates should be aware of the longer time before the new licence is issued, currently as much as four weeks after the documents have been processed by the WIA.
