Verify qualifications

You can verify your educational qualifications on the National Learners’ Records Database (NLRD) via SAQA VeriSearch at the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). If you are an employer, you can also confirm the qualifications of your employees on the database. If you want to check your own information, you will receive the full record of what the NLRD holds concerning you. 

When other parties verify your information as a learner, they must give an exact query (which qualification, institution and date). SAQA’s response is either “found” or “not found” concerning that information only.

Go to SAQA VeriSearch for more information on how to verify your educational qualifications.
