STUDENT RESOURCES AND SERVICES

Student Services

A successful career gives you the chance of doing what you want to do in the way you want to do it. Through VTCT you can take qualifications that cover every aspect of the skills necessary for success in your chosen career.
On registering with VTCT, you will receive a lifetime registration number and registration card similar to that shown below.

You should receive your card within eight weeks of starting your course. Keep your registration card safe as VTCT may not be able to help you, should you have problems whilst you are studying, if you cannot quote your registration number. Your number will tally with our records and can be used to prove that your centre has enrolled you on the correct course. You can also use your registration number everytime you apply for further VTCT qualifications, even if you chose to move to an alternative VTCT approved centre.

You should also be given a VTCT Student badge by your training centre to wear while you are training

                                                                       Badges
Once you have completed a course successfully, you will receive full certification and the chance to apply for one of our qualification badges, worn with pride by many practicing within the industry. Qualified sector badges cost just £5, you can purchase a badge by either completing our Badge Request Form or by ringing our Customer Support team on +44 (0) 23 8068 4500 with your credit or debit card details.

                                            Replacement Certificates
If you require a replacement certificate from VTCT there is a charge of £30.00 for each replacement certificate or letter required. Payments can be taken by credit or debit card over the telephone by our Customer Support team via +44 (0) 23 8068 4500. Alternatively, you can complete a VT16 Certificate Request Form. VTCT introduced a redesigned certificate in 2014 (as below). If you achieved your qualification prior to January 2014, you may receive your replacement certificate in the previous brand.

VTCT will usually only reissue certificates if they were originally issued after 2003. If the original certificate was issued before this date, we will send a letter confirming all full awards completed as shown on our records. All replacement certificates will be annotated “Duplicate” 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.
