​Interim certificates

You get an interim certificate if you successfully complete one of these courses:

The training company you complete the course with gives you the interim certificate. It's valid for 90 days, and allows you to work immediately.

Keep your interim certificate with you at work. If you are caught working without your interim certificate or it's expired, you could be fined.

We advise you to apply for your photo competency card as soon as possible. It will take four weeks to get your card once you apply.

Lost your interim certificate? Ask your training provider to give you another copy.
