A safer way to share your NEBOSH certificate online

Monday, 3 August 2020

Quite often on social media, especially LinkedIn, we get to see people sharing their NEBOSH results and certificates.

Whether it’s an introductory course or a long-awaited Diploma, we love seeing people share their NEBOSH success with friends, family and colleagues. We’ve captured some of the most recent celebrations in this short video:

If you’re sharing a photo of your certificate online, make sure you cover any sensitive information. Hide your Master Log Certificate Number and the QR code that is included on newer certificates. If you’re sharing a results letter, you should hide your learner number and your address.

This will keep your personal information safe, but it will also help stop others from producing fraudulent certificates. Your Master Log Certificate Number and learner number are unique to you, but could be useful to people trying to recreate a verifiable certificate.

More information on making sure your NEBOSH Learning Partner is accredited and how to verify certificates can be found in our recent news item, Study a Genuine NEBOSH Certificate.  

You can find and follow NEBOSH on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. If you're sharing your new NEBOSH qualifications online we'd love to see it, so please tag us or use #NEBOSH in your post. Your Learning Partner and employer will also be delighted to see your achievements, so why not tag them in too?
