A Part 66 IA certificate is an additional privilege that allows an engineer to perform and certify a review of airworthiness (RA) or the conformity of major modifications and repairs.

You'll need to attend a refresher course if you’ve gained a certificate previously, but you no longer meet the currency requirements of CAR 66.207.

The duration of a certificate is 60 months.
