    Courses for TR-steel/E, TR-steel/N and TR-steel/K are concluded by a voluntary examination. Course participants who have passed an examination with satisfactory results will receive a certificate. To obtain a certificate TR-steel/K a valid certificate from the basic course TR-steel/N is required.

    The period of validity of a certificate TR-steel is five years from date of examination.
