Achieving a qualification is a significant and exciting success. We celebrate our graduates in a variety of ways.

Badges and certificates

Upon completion of your qualification you’ll receive a presentation folder with a colour coded badge and an NZQA certificate.

If you are a trainee who would like to order a replacement badge, or if you are an education provider wanting to order badges for students who have completed their qualifications, order via the shop.

If you have any queries, please contact us at


Processing times at NZQA mean that it can take up to six weeks between completing a qualification and receiving an NZQA certificate and Careerforce badge.

Mayor’s Taskforce Graduations

Each year the Mayor’s Taskforce holds graduations around New Zealand to celebrate people who have recently completed a National Qualification through an Industry Training Organisation, like Careerforce.

These graduations are a time to celebrate success with family and friends. If you receive an invitation, don’t miss the opportunity to attend one of these unique events.
