The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the postponement of the April and May NAQTC Exam sessions in Reno and Las Vegas, disrupting the opportunity for many Technicians, Inspectors, and Specialists to recertify.

The NAQTC Board has taken the position that if your certification expires in May or June of 2020 the new expiration date will be Aug 31, 2020. However, you must attend the June/July 2020 exams because this will be your last chance before they expire on August 31, 2020.

Therefore, project owner representatives may contact NAQTC Certification via email for information regarding individuals' expiration dates in the NAQTC Certified Registry list. Please send inquiries to

This program is prescribed to meet in part, the requirements of the Code of Federal Regulations 637, Subpart B - Quality Assurance procedures for Construction.
