Certificate ID Versus Certificate Verification Code

When you receive a certificate, you may want to verify the certificate. Course, Learning Paths, and Event Certificates are associated with two unique identifiers that are used for verification:

  • The Certificate ID
  • Certificate Verification code


The Certificate ID is a unique ID for the user's certificate that is related to the completed Course, Learning Path, or Event. ("www.schoox.com/c138212068" in the example of the screenshot)

The Certificate Verification code is unique for the user's certificate and related to this specific certificate.  ("a9d3b50" in the example of the screenshot)

The conjunction of these two unique identifiers is used to verify the certificate authentication.

For example, if a non-Schoox user wants to verify that a Schoox user is awarded a certificate, this can be done by selecting the Certificate's ID URL and filling in the requesting Certificate Verification code.


Once the Enter button will be clicked, the requested Certificate will be printed.
