Replacement Certificates

VTCT offers a replacement certificate service Linx2Validate for learner’s who achieved their qualification post 2009.

Learners will need to create a free Linx2Validate account to access the new service.

Linx2Validate allows learners to use one link to:

  • Order replacement certificates (£35 charge per certificate)
  • Create and share e-certificates
  • Share with third party (e.g. employer or college) electronic certificate proof of achievement

Alternatively, payments can be taken by credit or debit card over the telephone by our Customer Support team via +44 (0) 23 8068 4500 or you can complete a VT16 Certificate Request Form. VTCT introduced a redesigned certificate in 2014 (as below). If the original certificate was issued before this date and we cannot print it in full, we will send a letter confirming all full awards completed as shown on our records.

Please note: If your certificate was issued less than 6 months ago, VTCT’s Quality Assurance team are required to authenticate the claim for your certificate with your centre of study before a replacement can be issued. Providing authentication is confirmed, VTCT will then contact you to obtain the replacement certificate fee of £35.00.

All replacement certificates will be annotated “Replacement” as agreed with the regulatory authorities. We cannot enter into any correspondence regarding awards which do not appear on our records.

Please note: Only if the reason for replacement is acceptable to VTCT (e.g. lost, stolen, destroyed etc) will a replacement certificate be issued. Once the search has been completed, this fee is non-refundable.
