Guys, do you know who is issuing Course Completion certificate according my FTO they do not need to see results from CAA to start CPL but this certificate?
some peeps say CAA, some says ground school...

But very few schools bother to issue them
..because it is not a requirement for an FTO to comply with the standards document. The introduction of the 'Standards Document 38' was an attempt by one individual at the UK CAA to impose the rules that applied to old-style UK licence integrated courses from the 1980s on all UK JAA training. There is no JAA requirement for this, and his attempt failed, but the CAA still publish the standards docs as 'advisory' documents.
Having said that, we issue course completion certificates on request, as do some other specialist groundschools.

....they do not need to see results from CAA to start CPL but this certificateSo they will start your CPL training if you have completed the course but failed all of the exams - A novel approach.

It depends on the FTO's approach, but you don't necessarily need all ATPL passes to start CPL training, however, you need them to be in place prior to your flight test. As the exam pass record is held by the CAA and presumeably all would need to be in place to book a CAA examiner, does this not make it an irrelevance to have a completion certificate issued? In any case you should have your CAA issued pass credits with your individual reference number.

Arguably you wouldn't need all 14 ATPL passes to sit the CPL flight test, provided you had sufficient subjects passed to meet the basic CPL requirements, i.e. cross credits.
