To refresh a STMS Cat B warrant the holder will need to attend a STMS refresher workshop. This renews the non-practising warrant.

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

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