How To Get Your NSS Certificate Delivered To Your Doorstep

Ghana is one of the African countries that are on the process of Digitization. With the advancement in technology in the 21st century and how countries have adjusted themselves to use technology in all aspects of life, Ghana is not far away from doing the same.

The president of Ghana has made digitization a centrepiece for its own development, thus the average Ghanaian has become used to digital telecom and financial services.

In 2018, the National Service Scheme digitized its certificate system to enable personnel who have successfully completed their service apply for their certificate online.

Once you apply online, your certificate will be delivered to your location. This was made possible by NSS collaborating with Delivery Hub Limited (DHL).

Since there were challenges in the collecting of NSS certificates, lack of proper inventory systems to file certificates and difficulty in locating certificates, there was the need to go digitize to solve all these problems.

The National Service Secretariat indeed proved that we are in a digital world. For those who are leaving in far places that need to travel several miles to the regional National Service Office to obtain your certificates can now sit at the comfort of your homes and request your certificates.

In this article, I will take you through the steps to follow to have your NSS certificate delivered to your doorstep.
