Configure Advanced Custom Certificates

Certificates confirm that a learner has completed specific training and allows them to showcase their accomplishments. The Learning solution allows for three different kinds of certificates. You can use the default certificate without needing to do anything, or you can customize the colors and simple imagery used on the default certificate.

The third option is to create a unique certificate outside of the Learning solution and upload it. This option allows the use of tokens or variables that will automatically populate training details for individual certificates — the learner's name, the course title, and the date to name a few. Advanced Custom Certificates can be activated on the academy level for all courses, curricula (learning paths), and events. Specific certificates can also be used for individual courses.

Only academy administrators can set up advanced custom certificates.

  1. Select the Course, Curricula, or Events sub-tab, and then Advanced Custom Certificate.
  2. Create the framework of your certificate using whatever tool you'd like; for example, Microsoft Word, or Adobe Illustrator.
  3. Export the document as a PDF. Advanced custom certificates use uploaded PDF forms, and must be generated using a PDF editor.
  4. Within your PDF editor, edit the document as a PDF form, specifically. Add fields to the form, and label them with the various options supplied in this token list
    Along with the default token options, you are also able to use any custom fields you've added to your academy. Make sure these tokens are added in the same format as the default tokens — all upper-case with underscores used to indicate spaces. For example, hiring date would be HIRING_DATE.
  5. Save the PDF.
  6. On the Certificates page, select the Upload file button, and choose your saved PDF.
  7. (optional) You can upload different certificates for the various languages available in your academy. After upload, select the language associated with each certificate, as well as which will be considered the default if a specific language option is not available for a particular learner.

When awarded to the learner,  the certificate's fields will be populated with the appropriate information.
