The National Council on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (NCTVET) has temporarily halted the printing of certificates.

The entity, which is a division of the Ministry of Education, says this has been precipitated by circumstances beyond its control.

It did not address what are the specific issues and how long they have been ongoing but stated that every effort is being made to resolve the matter at the earliest possible time.

The affected certificates are the National Vocational Qualification of Jamaica (NVQ-J), Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) and Job Certificates.

In the interim, candidates who have been recommended for certification will be issued a transcript.
