Letters and certificates will not be issued to students who have not paid, attended or reached the levels necessary for the documents they want.
  14. Course fees include examination, assessment, and certification fees for the course enrolled upon. If a student would like a separate certificate (where available) for part of a course the student will need to pay an additional registration fee.  For example if a student who is enrolled onto the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Complementary therapies would like a certificate for their massage course taken in Term 1 they will need to pay the VTCT registration fee for this course.
