Training for WDT, TDT, UDT authorisations
What does the WDT qualification cover?
WDT (Military Technical Inspection) powers allow goods to be transported out of the country for the benefit of a taxpayer who carries out his economic activity in another country located within the European Union. As a result of such transport, the taxpayer has the same right as the owner to dispose of the transported goods. One of the situations in which we deal with WDT is when a Polish company sells goods to an entrepreneur who is an EU VAT taxpayer and who conducts business activity in e.g. Spain.
The specific scope of the WDT concerns:
- carrying out technical supervision of fuel vapour recovery and technical equipment;
- verifying the qualifications of maintenance and technical equipment operators and extending the validity of their certificates;
- issuing authorisations to businesses that modernise or service technical equipment and manufacture specialised equipment;
- to issue military certificates relating to the authorisation in national traffic of vehicles for the transport of dangerous goods;
- agreeing technical documentation for the modernisation and servicing of technical equipment and the manufacture of specialised equipment;
- to apply for the supervision of technical equipment;
- analyse the ongoing assessment of the degree of risk posed by technical equipment;
- investigating the causes and consequences of damage to technical equipment;
- agreeing training curricula for maintainers and operators of technical equipment developed by the competent bodies;
- cooperation with UDT and TDT in carrying out technical supervision.

Course of training
The type of training depends on the type of equipment we intend to operate. Classes are divided into two stages: the theoretical, where the participant learns about the various standards and regulations (including occupational safety and health, so that we are aware of the potential risks when operating the machine in question), and the practical, where the trainee learns individually how to operate the equipment in question. Self-study materials are provided as part of each class, as well as a set of questions with answers that are expected during the UDT exam. We know from experience that this format is very helpful in the process of effective learning and also makes it much easier to successfully pass the exam to become a machine operator or maintainer. Should you have any problems understanding the questions given, there is also the possibility of obtaining additional study material and substantial support from our training staff.
All UDT training courses can be open, where anyone interested in acquiring a licence for a particular piece of equipment can enter, or closed, intended for specific organised groups. In some courses, entry to a particular group is determined by the student's level of proficiency, which is determined by a competency test. This form of group division is important for the course, as it improves the learning process and evens out the level of participants. In the case of groups with a lower level of proficiency, the duration of the course is extended accordingly and additional support is provided by the training team.
In most cases, it is divided into a theoretical part (in the form of a test) and a practical part (usually oral). The threshold for passing the exam depends on the specific piece of equipment for which you wish to be certified.
Conditions for joining the course
To take the course the trainee must:
- be over the age of eighteen;
- have a skilled worker's certificate or a minimum of primary education;
- have a certificate of no health contraindication.
