How to get copies of your documents certified

To get your documents certified:

  1. Make a good quality photocopy of each of your documents (e.g. your qualifications, statements of attainment, driver's licence, etc.).
  2. Take the photocopies and the originals to a Justice of the Peace (JP) or Commissioner for Declarations (CDec).

The JP or CDec will compare the documents, and certify that the photocopies are true copies of the originals.

Practical experience form (PEF)

For most applications, you'll need to submit a practical experience form (PDF, 255KB) declaring your experience. The experience relevant to the licence or authorisation you are applying for is stated in the requirements.

Please ensure that you:

  • meet the relevant experience requirements and any relevant time frames
  • fill in the form carefully
  • can provide evidence of your experience if it is requested.

If your practical experience form is incomplete or invalid, your application will be rejected or refused and the application fee will not be refunded.

Photograph for all individual applicants

If you're applying for a gas work licence, authorisation or gas device approval authority as an individual, you'll need to upload a digital photograph of yourself that meets the Australian passport photo guidelines. Photographs that do not meet the guidelines will not be accepted.

To verify the digital photograph is of you, you must also upload a certified copy of the front and back of your current Queensland driver's licence or photo identification card (or equivalent photographic identity card from another state, territory or New Zealand).

If you have previously provided a photograph for your gas work licence or authorisation, you do not need to provide it again. If you are an individual applicant and you do not provide a photograph, your application will be rejected and the application fee will not be refunded.
