If you would like to update an existing SKILLcard:

If you would like to update your card with a newly completed qualification or course, you will need to send us a copy of your certificate by email or post. We will update your SKILLcard electronically at no cost. The new information will then be added to the information held by the card's chip when it is next read.

If you wish to replace your SKILLcard and have the updated qualification or course appear in writing on the back of your card, you will need to complete an upgrade/update application form (download one here), then return it to us with the appropriate fee.

If you would like to replace a lost or stolen SKILLcard

The full card fee of £40 will apply. You can find out more here.
