If you are unable to register via PABO, we will be happy to issue you with a certificate of achievement after you have successfully passed the examination.  To do so, please access "Performance records and more" in the area of your personal profile here on OnCourse and use the registration option "eGS Leistungsnachweise/certificates of achievement". Certificates of achievement are issued and sent out at most once a month - please register in good time.
