The objective of this work is to design and implement an enhanced wed-based certificate verification system that will assist schools and co-operate organizations to confirm the originality of students’ certificate by displaying certificate details, and format with owner’s image. This work was motivated by the level of certificate forgery, time wastage and the stress encountered while processing this manually. The system adopted the object oriented and design methodology (OOADM) while the programming language used for the front-end design was Hypertext Markup Language (HTML5), Cascading Style Sheet (CSS3), Bootstrap Frame work and Back end design was achieved with Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP5) and My-Structural Query Language (MySQL). The result after design was an enhanced web-based certificate verification system that was able to verify and authenticate students’ certificates and display certificate image after verification process, which could be used to reduce the high rate of certificate forgery not only within the educational system but in other co-operate organizations.
