The digital version of the tradesperson certificate is available through the Service NSW app. Tradesperson certificates are issued for plumbers, drainers and gasfitters.

Your digital tradesperson certificate does not replace your physical card. You’ll still need to carry your physical card when you’re engaging in construction work.


You must be an existing tradesperson certificate holder.
