The next step to receiving your practising TMO warrant

Before the TMO-NP can become practising they must complete additional mentoring and a on-site practical assessment

Select and book your mentoring and assessment from the Training menu.


Waka Kotahi warrants are refreshed every 3 years.

To refresh a STMS TMO warrant the holder will need to attend a TMO-NP workshop. This renews the non-practising warrant.

The practising TMO warrant is renewed once the TMO practical re-assessment has been successfully completed.

The practising warrant will expire on the same date as the non-practising warrant.
