    If you are having issues opening your e-certificate or being unable to view the information embedded, get in touch with the Business Support Team at . We will re-send a new e-certificate to see if this rectifies the issue first. If the issue is not solved, we will conduct a brief video chat with you as it may be a technical setting that is blocking the e-certificate.

    E-Certificates are the securest form of sending out results to learners and any other forms of accreditation. Each e-Certificate is issued with a unique verification stamp and a certificate authentication code linked to the learner’s / centre’s name. The authenticity of an e-Certificate can be checked and assured by either: • Visiting the National Qualifications website, navigating to the e-Certificate validation form which can be found on the e-Certificate page. • Calling the National Qualifications office where our admin team can verify the details of the certificate. Our office number can be found on the e-Certificate and our website.

    It is not a problem if you decide you prefer a physical copy of your certificate, however there will be a charge. Paper certificates are £20 and will be posted out to you via Royal Mail 2nd class, within 48 hours, after your request has been approved. You will receive an email to notify you that your request for a physical copy has been approved.
