We’ve had feedback from training providers about the difficulty some of you have found in having to provide two versions of your certificate of achievement – one with REPs logos for REPs members, and one without for non-REPs members. We’ve listened to this feedback and discussed it with REPs, who have decided that it is no longer an essential requirement.
This means that whilst you still have to check whether your learners are REPs members or not, to ensure they have the prerequisite qualification in place if they are, you no longer have to provide different certificates.
The prerequisite is in place as the recommended skill level to undertake your training, and is mandatory for REPs members in order for them to be covered by their REPs insurance and to be able to collect their CPD points, so ensure you continue recording this for all your learners. The prerequisite is recommended for all other learners undertaking your training, but is not a mandatory requirement as we don’t want to restrict your market.
If you are certificating learners for an assessed course, where the points awarded are between 8 and 16, you must also ensure you have added the standards that you were required to part-map to for your submission on the back of the certificate. This is essential for employers as it provides them with more information on what the course covers, and could be the difference between them appointing the applicant or not!
If you need any further clarification of the logos to include on your certificates, or the standards to list on the back, please contact the Professional Development team for a chat on either 0333 577 0908 or email@example.com.
