All training centres and candidates transitioned to using IWCF eCerts in 2018.
eCerts are integrated within FORUM and award a digital badge to successful candidates, replacing the previous paper IWCF certificate. Successful candidates will receive an email with their eCert within 90 days of completing a course. The eCert will be sent to the email address the candidate used to register in FORUM.
Using the Open Badges framework which has been developed by Mozilla, every eCert holds meta-data that allows each badge to be traced back to its origin quickly and easily.
Each eCert features a unique code and this can be used to trace the authenticity of the badge using the verification tool within FORUM. The verification page can be used by accredited centres, potential employers, organisations and individuals to confirm that the badges are valid and have been issued by IWCF.
Candidates can also give consent in the employer section of their FORUM account for a copy of their eCert to be automatically sent directly to their employers email address.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about eCerts.
