Certification

All about getting your certificates after you've completed your course

You've finished your course and passed your examinations with flying colours. Congratulations! So... how do you get your certificates?

If you are a student graduating in June or December, you can get your certificates at graduation.

But what if you don't graduate in June or December? Or what if you can't attend graduation?

Relax. Here's some information to help you:

When to Get Your Certificates If You Don't Finish in June or December

Certificates for students who did not finish their course in June or December will be available for pick-up form the National School of Aesthetics offices. Your results letter will list an approximate date when your certificates will be ready for pick-up.

You must make an appointment before picking them up.

You are more than welcome to attend graduation as well. Please contact Scott Fack from 1 June onwards for courses ending in June or 1 December onwards for course ending in December for further information.

We do not, under any circumstances, automatically send out certificates.

Requirements When Picking Up Your Certificates

If You Are Picking Up Your Certificates

You must have made an appointment to pick up your certificates.

You must show up at the allotted time in order to pick up your certificates.

If you do not make an appointment, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to assist you immediately.

If Someone Is Picking Up Your Certificates For You

You must have made an appointment for this person to pick up your certificates for you.

You must supply a signed letter stating:

  • The name of the person picking up the certificates
  • That you give that person permission to pick up those certificates on your behalf
  • Your name
  • Your signature
  • The date you signed the letter

The person picking up your certificates will need proof of identity (Drivers License preferred) with their photograph and name on it in order to complete this.

The school accepts no liability in damages that occur once the certificates are handed over to the third party.

Requirements For Sending Out Your Certificates

You will need to contact the school for the price to courier your certificates out.

You will then need to supply the following:

  • A letter with:
    • Your name
    • Where you want the certificates couriered to
    • Payment for the courier fees
    • A statement saying you understand the school is not liable for any damages that may occur in transport
    • Your signature
    • The date you signed the letter

Once this is received in full, we will then courier your certificates out.

Time Limit to Pick Up Certificates

If your certificates are not picked up within 6 months from the graduation date (or date received by the international governing body), the certificates will be destroyed.

The National School of Aesthetics will not pay replacement fees on certificates destroyed under these circumstances; this will be your responsibility.

It should be appreciated that we are not a storage facility and space is at a premium at our premises.

Having Lost or Damaged Certificates Replaced

School Certificates

If your certificates are lost or damaged, and you wish to have them replaced, you would need to download, fill out and submit, with payment, the Diploma Reprint Form.

We will then check the information you have supplied with the register we hold.

If everything has been done correctly, we will then print the certificates at the next available printing cycle. This is normally with another batch of certificates.

See Cost of reprinting certificates for more information on replacement costs. Courier costs tend to fluctuate, so please contact the school directly for this information.

If Your Name Has Changed

If your legal name has changed, or if you wish us to print your certificates in a different name to the name in which they were previously issued, you will need to supply us with proof of the change in name. If by deed-poll, this would need to be that document. If through marriage, we would need to see the marriage certificate.

International Certificates / Diplomas

If your international (ITEC, CIBTAC, CIDESCO) certificates are lost or damaged, and you wish to have them replaced, you would need to contact the international governing body direct to have your certificates replaced. We normally do not handle such requests.

When International Certificates Become Available

For ITEC and CIBTAC, international certificates usually arrive approximately 2 to 3 weeks after international results are received.

For CIDESCO, international certificates usually arrive approximately 6 weeks after your letter and evidence of 600 documented work hours are sent.

We neither notify you nor send your certificates out automatically when they arrive. It is your responsibility to make arrangements to pick-up your certificates or have them sent out, as per the policies and procedures on this page.
