What does this cer­ti­fi­ca­te look like?

The con­cre­te design of the cer­ti­fi­ca­te is left to the respec­ti­ve IHK. Howe­ver, cer­tain for­mal cri­te­ria must be met. The essen­ti­al com­pon­ents of the cer­ti­fi­ca­te of com­pe­tence are laid down in the Guar­ding Ordi­nan­ce (BewachV), name­ly quite spe­ci­fi­cal­ly in Annex 3 (to § 11 para­graph 7) with the title “Cer­ti­fi­ca­te of suc­cessful com­ple­ti­on of an expert exami­na­ti­on pur­su­ant to Sec­tion 34a (1) sen­tence 3 num­ber 3 and (1a) sen­tence 2 of the Trade, Com­mer­ce and Indus­try Regu­la­ti­on Act (Gewer­be­ord­nung)„.

Sam­ple certificate

The fol­lo­wing cer­ti­fi­ca­te was pro­vi­ded to us by an exami­na­ti­on par­ti­ci­pant from Nurem­berg. For secu­ri­ty reasons, we have made the per­so­nal data and the signa­tu­re unrecognisable:

Certificate of competence

War­ning against fake cer­ti­fi­ca­tes (for­ge­ries)

At this point we would like to issue a clear war­ning: It hap­pens again and again that peo­p­le fal­si­fy such cer­ti­fi­ca­tes of com­pe­tence or have fal­se cer­ti­fi­ca­tes issued by dubio­us pro­vi­ders. Don’t do that!
You are lia­ble to pro­se­cu­ti­on accor­ding to § 267 StGB (Ger­man Penal Code) (for­gery of docu­ments) if you use such a for­ged docu­ment in legal tran­sac­tions (e.g. for pre­sen­ta­ti­on to an employ­er or a public aut­ho­ri­ty)! In addi­ti­on, the fraud will be dis­co­ver­ed quick­ly when you compa­re it with the regis­ter of guards! So save yours­elf the trou­ble and take the exami­na­ti­on at the IHK honest­ly and pro­per­ly. The effort is manageable.

In the next chap­ter, you will find a sum­ma­ry of the rele­vant legal requi­re­ments from § 34a of the Trade, Com­mer­ce and Indus­try Regu­la­ti­on Act (GewO) and the Guar­ding Ordi­nan­ce (BewachV).
