CertCheck Overview


CertCheck is an optional feature that you can request to be enabled. The main purpose of this feature is to provide validation for any Certificates issued, providing peace of mind to anyone who suspects that the award might not be legitimate.

Enabling CertCheck will activate a publicly accessible page on your site. On this page, you can enter the name of the student and the Certificate Number to bring up the outcomes that they achieved for the units on that Certificate.


You will need to contact the ReadyTech support team and request for this feature to be enabled.

On the left-hand side of the page, click on the CertCheck button and you should be brought to a page that contains your CertCheck settings.
