How to Access your eCertificate when you Graduate your Program
Covid19 has brought with it a number of changes, with social distancing and work-from-home measures becoming common. At GBCTechTraining, these changes mean that while our online programs are still available, George Brown College has closed its physical buildings to staff and students and we are working remotely. Due to this closure we are currently unable to mail out Certificates; but not to worry, you are now able to access your Certificate as an online eCertificate.
What does it cost to access my eCertificate?
It’s free! There is no charge to download your eCertificate, and it counts as an official documentation of your program completion.
How long after I finish my program can I download my eCertificate?
Your eCertificate will be available to you within two weeks of completing your final module exam. If you graduated prior to March 12, 2020 and would like a copy of your eCertificate, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will create one for you.
Will I still receive a printed, official copy of my Certificate?
Of course! When the college is reopened, we will automatically mail you a copy of your Certificate.
How to Access Your eCertificate
Please follow these steps to view and print your eCertificate:
Creating a Record Account:
1. If you do have a Records account, you can login with your username and password. If you do not already have a Records account, click “Student & Alumni Registration”. Note, you will not use the same Username and Password that you use to log in to the Resource Centre. If you have forgotten your Student Records Username or Password, please use your personal email to retrieve it here.
2. After clicking “Student & Alumni Registration”, enter your personal email address and create a password.
3. On the next page, enter your student number, your first name, last name, and date of birth. These details should match what we have in our student system. If you forgot any of these details, you can click forgot my details, and then click submit. This will be reviewed and approved within 1 business day.
4. If the details match, then your account is automatically approved. You will be sent an email verification to the email address you registered with. Click the verification link within 24 hours to verify your Records account.
Viewing your eCertificate:
1. From your student dashboard page, click “View and Order Secure Documents” and Click the menu button in the certificate box.
