Verification of Qualifications
In the course of a recruitment process, an employer may wish to verify that a QQI certificate presented by an applicant represents an authentic award made by QQI or one of its predecessors (HETAC, FETAC etc).
As part of its work as an awarding body, QQI provides just such a verification service, to both public and private sector employer. The fee for this service is €20 per verification.
Our verification process
All certificates issued by QQI have unique security features. These allow us to identify and match each document against the relevant data held on QQI's information systems.
- If the applicant has the original certificate, please request a scanned copy from them and send it to us electronically.
- If the applicant does not have the original certificate, please provide their name, date of birth, gender and PPS number, along with a signed statement of consent from the applicant.
A signed statement of consent from the applicant must be submitted in addition to the above.
Most verification requests take no longer than 10 working days to be processed.
All verification documents should be sent via this QQI application form for employers.
If you require a large number of verifications on a regular or ongoing basis, we are happy to assist.
Feel free to contact us to discuss how QQI can best meet your needs.
