Online Certificate Verification Page
OpenEDG has created an online system to verify all C++ Institute credentials held by candidates all over the world. Candidates may now have others easily verify their certification status by using a unique certificate verification code. The certificate verification code can be found on all certificates issued by C++ Institute in the bottom right-hand corner.
Direct link to a digital transcript
Each candidate who holds a certification issued by C++ Institute can present a direct link to their digital transcript. This link takes the following form: https://verify.openedg.org/?id=AAAA.BBBB.CCCC/ – in which the four letters A, four letters B, and four letters C constitute a unique 12-character verification code. Example: https://verify.openedg.org/?id=30JZ.HI9U.sixS.
Official paper certificate
Each candidate who has passed one of the following C++ Institute exams receives an official paper certificate: CLA, CLP, CPA, and CPP. The certificate bears the holder’s name, title, and a unique verification code. It also states the level of the holder’s proficiency in the C or C++ programming language and the scope of subjects tested during an exam. The certificate is issued within 45 days of passing the exam and sent to the candidate by post.
Note: As of September 1, 2020, all certifications will be issued in the digital form only. No paperback versions of certifications will be sent to successful test candidates by default.
