From Marine Personnel Regulations.

103 (3) The successful completion of a course that was taken for the purpose of obtaining a certificate of competency or an endorsement remains valid for life once that certificate or endorsement has been obtained, except in the case of the following courses:
(c) a course with respect to tankers;

and section 165 (2) An applicant for renewal of a Specialized Oil Tanker Training endorsement shall meet the requirements set out in column 1 of the table to this subsection and the corresponding specifications set out in column 2.

TABLE
Item Column 1 Column 2
Requirements
Specifications
1 Experience The following service within the 5 years before the application date for renewal, if the applicant has not obtained the training certificate referred to in item 2:

(a) at least 3 months on board one or more oil tankers performing duties relating to the loading, discharging or transferring of cargo and the operation of cargo equipment; or

(b) at least 24 months as
(i) a shore captain or marine superintendent in charge of supervising the loading or unloading of oil tankers, or
(ii) an instructor at a recognized institution having taught at least two approved training courses in specialized oil tanker safety.

2
Certificate to be provided to the examiner
If the applicant has not acquired the experience set out in item 1, a specialized oil tanker safety training certificate obtained within the 5 years before the application date for renewal.

So if you do not have 3 months on a tanker in the past 5 years, you have to retake the advanced courses again.
