e-Certificates is a new service developed by us to allow learners to access PDF versions of their certificates. It means they can have their certificates quickly and easily validated online using a unique authentication code. You can verify a potential employee’s certification by submitting the unique 20 digit code on our verify page.
We hope this service will give employers even more trust in the authenticity of City & Guilds learners. An e-certificate authentication code is only valid when matched to the name of the individual on the certificate so they can’t be used by anyone else – however, you should still check the identity of the individual using your normal checks.
If you validate an e-certificate online then you can trust the authenticity of it, however if you have any concerns about a certificate that has been presented to you then please do get in touch.
