The UNECE require International Certificate of Competency (ICC) cardholders’ signature to be present on all ICC cards. IYT are removing the signature strip from the back of our cards and moving to digital signatures. Therefore, we are implementing the addition of student’s signature upload into their profile/account ID, in order to print this on their International Certificate of Competency (ICC) card.

Please know that our server is protected with WAF, Cloudflare and the communication is encrypted using SSL certificate from DigiCert. Cloudflare adds layers of firewall as well as continuously monitors the access being made to the server. It blocks any access that appears suspicious. We also scan our servers regularly with antivirus applications. Therefore, you can rest assured that your information and uploads are safe and secure.

The system is now configured to require the signature upload before we can process/print an ICC.  This upload is quite simple.  The candidate must sign in blue or black ink on a white piece of paper and take a photograph which they upload to their profile. 

If this is a new profile/account ID, please follow these steps to include the signature upload, as well as the steps to create an IYT Account ID here Demo Account ID Creation/ Student Registration . 

1.       Write your signature on a white piece of paper using blue or black ink.

2.       Take a photograph of the signature in good lighting with no shadows on the page.

6.       Email this image to yourself if you are working on a computer and download it on your computer/laptop. You need to login to edit your profile and go to the tab “ICC CERTIFICATES OF COMPETENCE” and upload the signature image into profile. You can also do this from your phone/tablet as well.

a.       As you will see the photograph does not appear with a white background, however, you can correct this by editing the brightness and contrast feature. 

b.       If not, we will correct the color when we process an ICC certificate.
