Verify learner achievements of qualifications

1. Verify my qualifications or achievements on the NRLD database Individuals.

You can verify your educational Qualifications on the National Learners` Records Database (NLRD) 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 check your own information, you 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.

  • Information currently available on the NLRD
  • University achievements from 1986 to 2008 in full
  • Partial information from 1965 to 1985
  • A small amount of information from 1964 back to 1900.

Information from 2009 and 2010 is currently being loaded, and can be verified against the unaudited dataset that is held separately from the NLRD itself.

  • Technikon achievements from 1999 to 2005
  • Senior Certificate achievements from 1992 to 2010.
  • Achievements submitted by Education and Training Quality Assurance bodies (ETQAs).

To request your own transcript of achievements from the National Learners’ Records Database, please e-mail your National ID Number and Full Name, with the subject “Request for Transcript”, to verifications@saqa.org.za

Please note: the transcript is for your own information. It does not replace SAQA’s usual verification process and reports.  It is not a verification statement in terms of the Public Service directive, and it should not be attached to job applications.

Should there be no information, you can contact the NQF and Career Advice Services on help@careerhelp.org.za with scanned copies of your certificates for further information.
