previous exposure and conversion to positive TB test

I was exposed to TB 27 yrs ago and converted to positive skin test. I was treated for 1 yr and followup CXR normal and no symptoms. There is a requirement for a TB skin skin with a new job. I believe I do not need a screening skin test since I was once positive. Will this explanation be sufficient or do I repeat a screening TB skin test any way?
Thank you
