|Swiping in an individual for training or assessments
A virtual Sentinel card carries the same authority and function as the physical card and can be used to swipe in when attending training and lineside assessments. Physical cards will still be in circulation and all individuals will still be issued one when they join the scheme, as virtual cards are an optional extra. The virtual card will look and scan the same as a physical one and will still display:
- A photograph
- Sentinel number
- Restriction identifiers
- QR code
When swiping in, if the delegate is using a virtual Sentinel card, they must present it using Vircarda, the wallet app where virtual cards will be stored. Copies or screengrabs of virtual cards can not be used to swipe in due to the technical security behind them. This will ensure the virtual card you swipe is genuine.
