Hi

Certificates for the September 2014 CPD, International and Supporting Adults Programme units will not be issued by 4th February, as per the key dates document.  The wording on CPD certificates has been reviewed and changed recently and this has caused a delay.  Certificates will now be issued by Wednesday 18th February.

I apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

Best wishes,

Victoria
