From 25th January 2012 the online certification service has been run by the Federation for Industry Sector Skills and Standards (FISSS), in conjunction with SSCs and SSOs, and is known as Apprenticeship Certificates England (ACE).
Training providers or employers, that act on the apprentices behalf, can request Apprenticeship certification in England using the ACE online system.
The ACE online system has replaced the previous paper based system used in England prior to April 2012. The link to ACE Online can be accessed to the right of this page under ‘See also’.
A ‘Universal Authorisation and Declaration' form has been created to fall in line with the new regulations, which can be found in the downloads section on the right hand side of this page. Training providers/employers will need to ensure the apprentice has signed this form. This will then need to be uploaded onto ACE together with all other certificate evidence. From 1st March 2014 it is mandatory for the ‘Universal Authorisation and Declaration' form Version 3 to be completed.
More information on ACE Online can be found in our 'Downloads' or 'See Also' section.
