Verifying authenticity of an Open Awards Certificate / e-Certificate
All our certificates, paper and e-Certificates, have a unique QR code embedded. This code provides secure authentication of the certificate through AuthentiQual.com verification. Scanning this QR code from a paper certificate OR on screen using any QR Reader app provides secure authentication of the certificate.
Certificates can also be verified by visiting the Check a Certificate page and entering key information from the certificate e.g. learner name and certificate number you will receive immediate confirmation of that certificate’s authenticity.
