Short Delay in Issue of Certificates of Proficiency

Date : 26 / 08 / 2010
Author : Michael Owen - VK3KI

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has requested that the WIA temporarily suspend the issue of Certificates of Proficiency. This is due to some issues which have arisen regarding the instrument delegating this power to the WIA.

To address this it is anticipated the ACMA will remake the delegation at its next Board Meeting on 9 September 2010. The WIA would then expect to recommence issuing certificates the next day. Additionally, processing of a small number of applications for licences following recent examinations will also be delayed, as the licences cannot be issued by ACMA until the certificates of proficiency have been issued.

So, if you are waiting for a certificate of proficiency or a new licence, please be patient as it is hoped that any backlog will be dealt with very promptly after 9 September.
