Course Certificates

Our navigation courses are externally awarded, so certificates are issued by first class signed for post following the completion of the course. You should expect to receive your certificate within 4 weeks of the course, so please contact us if this has not happened. We regret that we cannot be held responsible for missing certificates reported to us more than 2 months after the end of the course. We will assist you in applying for replacements after this time but any replacement certificate fees will be your responsibility.

Contact Information

Borderlands retains contact details of individuals who have completed and returned course booking forms to us. The details are used for course administration purposes. Occasional email newsletters and certificate expiry reminders are sent to clients who have opted in to receive these.
