Major features

Automatically generate verification QR code for certificates

In preparation for the deployment of the onCourse Certificate Verification service, Statements of Attainment and Qualifications can now be printed with a unique QR (Quick Response) code and manual URL verification code.

The Certificate Verification service will allow employers or other RTOs to confirm the certificate was issued to the student named without requiring them phone, or otherwise contact the RTO to request look up of the Certificate number in the register. This web portal feature is currently in testing and will be deployed shortly.

Printing the built in certificate template will allow you to print Statement of Attainment and Qualification certificates with or without a QR code. All RTOs wishing to use the verification portal should check the default location of the QR code on their onCourse certificate report and make adjustments to the background report elements or location of the QR code in the report as necessary. If you wish to add the QR code to existing custom certificate reports, you can contact ish for assistance.
