From now on, you will receive your certificates digitally!

We are constantly looking for ways to reduce ourcarbon footprint. For example, 25% of our fleet is now fully electric. In tenders from large multinationals and government organisations, we have also noticed that ourCO2 reduction approach has (partly) contributed to our winning the tender.

We print thousands of certificates every year, which are then collected by PostNL and delivered to our customers.
A while ago, we therefore started sending our certificates both digitally and in hard copy. Now that we do so, it appears that our customers actually no longer attach any value to a paper certificate.

We have also noticed that certifying bodies now only send digital certificates, or are in the process of doing so.

In addition toCO2 reduction and environmental benefits, not sending paper certificates anymore also results in cost savings (labour, toners, paper, postage). By only issuing certificates digitally, we achieve cost savings that prevent us from having to raise our selling prices.

See below for each type of certificate what a duplicate paper certificate costs, or where you can look up the validity of various certificates online.

Have the last name and date of birth ready. Fill in the surname without the prefixes. If you have passed, you can scan the QR code that appears or click on 'digital pass' and take a screenshot of the pass with your phone as proof. Alternatively, you can put the link to the digital pass on your phone as a shortcut. Note: the digital pass only works for SOG and VCA exams taken by our examination bureau PBNA. The following passes are included: - All VCA diplomas obtained at PBNA after 1-1-2015; - All SOG diplomas obtained at PBNA after 1-1-2018.
