Active IQ offers a free service that allows individuals to verify that an Active IQ awarded certificate is genuine. This facility may be of particular use for:
- Learners who wish to share their unique certificate details for the purposes of confirming their attainment in a particular subject area
- Employers who wish to verify the authenticity of an individual’s qualification certificate/s that have been presented to them
- Training providers who wish to verify the authenticity of an individual’s qualification certificate/s for the purposes of Exemption or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
To verify a qualification certificate, simply visit this page, enter the required details and then click the ‘Verify’ button. The qualification number and certificate number can be found on the learner’s certificate, and the forename and surname should be entered exactly as printed on the certificate; the date of birth is OPTIONAL and does not have to be entered for a basic verification.
You can authenticate our new format certificates through AuthentiQual.
The QR code in the top right hand corner of the certificate contains a unique reference.
On a paper certificate, the QR code can be scanned with a mobile phone or any device with a QR scanner app (usually free to download). If you have an e-certificate on your computer, you can click on the QR code to be taken to the AuthentiQual site where you will find definitive information on the validity of the certificate. This service is available 24 hours a day.
If you have any concerns regarding the validity of an Active IQ certificate, please contact us.
