BSAC photo-ID qualification cards are universally accepted and more convenient as proof of qualification than the Qualification Record Book (QRB).

Update Thursday 25 January 2018:

There may be a slight delay in qualification card processing at the moment due to an issue with our supplier, this could affect your card being sent out to you within the usual time frame. We are hoping to fix this quickly and we will get your card to you as soon as possible. 

This should not prevent your qualification details being updated in our database. Please go to your MyBSAC account to access your details. You can print this page and use it as confirmation of your qualification, please make sure your photo is visible. 

If your record has not been updated and you have waited longer than 14 days for your qualification card please email us and let us know or 0151 350 6213.
