e-Certificates allows 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.

This service will provide employers with trust in the authenticity of City & Guilds learner’s achievements. 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.
