How should we ensure the learner meets the requirements to book onto a qualification?
The approved centre is responsible for ensuring the learner holds the qualification pre-requisites prior to booking onto a course.

The method of checking this is the decision of the centre, however, to ensure there are no delays in results being sent out we recommend asking to see evidence of the qualification before the course begins.

A learner has misplaced the certificate. How can we check they hold a qualification?
The learner will need to request a replacement certificate, please visit the replacement certificates page here.
