Before expiration of the professional competence certificate, it is possible to request its prolongation. It could be done electronically (interactively – Form 9, electronic signatur or data mailbox required), in writing, or by personal delivery of the printed form (contacts here). The following principles apply:
CTU may only decide to extend the validity of a certificate only during the period of validity of the certificate concerned and after the payment of the relevant administrative fee. The application to extend the period of validity of a certificate must be delivered to CTU not later than one month before the date of expiration of the validity of that certificate.
If the period of validity of a professional competence certificate has expired, a new certificate may be issued within one year of the expiration of its validity if the applicant submit the application with confirmation that they operated the radio transmitting equipment for which the certificate was issued for at least two years during the period of validity of the certificate. In this case, an administrative fee must be paid in the amount of CZK 400. A (renewed) certificate is issued to the applicant based on an application (Form 9 – “Application for the extension of the period of validity/the issue of a special competence certificate”. Reason for issue of certificate: The issue of a new certificate within one year of the expiration of the period of validity of the original certificate).
