Can iTEC give me my results over the phone?

No. All result enquiries need to be directed to us.  We check the ITEC site daily and will contact you by email the day we have your results.

I have changed my name, can I get a replacement certificate in my new name?

You will need to provide iTEC with the following:

Your original certificate(s)**

A signed covering letter explaining why you are requesting the change of name

the letter must include a return address

the letter must include a contact number so that VTCT can call you to take payment (there is a £35.00 fee per certificate for this service)

** If you have lost the original certificate(s) please indicate this within the covering letter

A certified copy of your identification (do not send originals):


Birth certificate

Driving licence

A certified copy of the legal documentation confirming the name change (do not send originals):

Marriage / civil partnership certificate

Decree absolute

Change of name deed or deed poll

Public announcement

Police report (change of name due to personal safety)

How do I get a copy of a document certified?

The above documentation must be posted to us, recorded delivery recommended. Once received VTCT will make contact with you to take payment. 

Where the above criteria has not been fully met, iTEC retain the right to refuse requests for name changes.

How do I get a replacement certificate/diploma/badge?

To request a replacement certificate/diploma/badge, visit the Replacement Certificates page here. Replacement diploma requests are issued within 20 working days from receipt of request.

All replacement certificates will be annotated “Replacement” as agreed with the regulatory authorities. We cannot enter into any correspondence regarding awards which do not appear on our records.

When I have achieved an iTEC qualification what letters can I put after my name?

If you have achieved a Certificate at levels 2-4:

iTEC Cert [and then the qualification name]

Will my iTEC qualification be recognised in other countries?

iTEC currently operates in 39 countries worldwide. iTEC qualifications are well known and recognised by employers around the world for high standards and employability. However, you must contact the Visa Branch of the Embassy of the country where you wish to travel to, in order to establish the criteria required to work or study in your chosen country as this differs from country to country. It is the responsibility of the individual who is travelling to establish if their iTEC qualification will be recognised in other countries.

Europass and/or NARIC may assist you further.

If you have queries regarding the examination application, process or your results please contact us in the first instance and we will be able to help you.
