To renew your certificate, you will need to provide a statutory declaration to verify that you have done a minimum number of 100 hours of locating in the past 12 months and confirm that you use the required equipment. Download the statutory declaration template relevant to your State below.

Once you have completed your statutory declaration, follow these steps to renew your certificate:
