ILD/PDAS/AEL/TPESS Certificate Authority

The Certificate Authority is an electronic system to manage ILD, PDAS, AEL, and TPESS certification. Trainers may enter their rosters, administrators can verify a certificate, and participants may pay for and print their certificates all from this web site.

Important: If you have recently completed ILD, PDAS, AEL, or TPESS training and are unable to login, a different spelling of your name may have been entered. Please have the trainer make any name corrections before paying or printing a certificate. The name entered on the login screen is the name that will appear on the printed certificate. Once a certificate is printed, your information cannot be altered.

Verify your certificate
Each certificate generated by our certificate authority has a unique eight digit serial number in the bottom left corner for the document. The verify button will allow any hiring entity to enter this number and verify the authenticity of the certificate. Please note that only certificates issued AFTER January 1, 2008 can be verified since certificates issued prior to January 1, 2008 do not have a serial number.

Access and print your certificate

ILD and PDAS participants who completed their training after January 1, 2008, may click here to print out their certificate.  Those who completed their ILD and PDAS training before January 1, 2008, will need to contact the education service center in the region in which they took the training to get a copy of their certificate.

Please note that payment is required prior to printing your certificate for those who completed the training between January 1, 2008 and March 1, 2009.
