Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the type of course you have completed, your certificate wait time may vary. 

Some courses require manual marking of work from one of our specialist trainers, so the timeframe from submission to certificate may be higher. 

For our shorter courses such as professional development eLearning, these can be marked a lot quicker so the timeframe from submission to completion will be much faster. 

Please allow for up to seven days for your certificate to be processed, and don’t forget to check your junk folder for your email containing the certificate as this can occasionally occur.

Alternatively, log into your learner portal where your digital certificate can be accessed and stored on your learner portal.
