Electronic certification passes

Our electronic certification passes mean you can show the procedures for which you are certified quickly and easily. The most important procedures, the relevant levels within them and their validity dates are summarised on the reverse of the pass, and the integrated QR Code means that the data on the pass can be verified online at any time. Although the pass does not replace the certificate itself, it makes day-to-day work easier, as you no longer have to take your actual certificates with you to show the areas for which you are certified.
