How to Create a Certificate

You can create a certificate that students will receive after they successfully complete your course. The certificate will indicate to whom it was issued, the name of the course, instructor names, and issue date. You can customize its style and add images that suit your course.

Read more about how to set up the criteria for issuing a certificate: Course Completion Criteria.

Create a Certificate

Go to the "EDU" section in the "Certificates" > “Builder” tab.

Customize the Certificate Style

Select your text style — font and color.

Choose a background color.

Choose a background color or upload an image.

You can also add an additional picture. It will be right-aligned.

On a paid plan, you can also remove the SendPulse logo.

Customize the Certificate Content

The student receives a certificate in the language set in their account at the time of receiving the certificate. By default, the student's account is set to the same language that was used on the site when they registered for the course. The student can change the language in their personal account anytime.

By default, the certificate contains the information about your student who completed the course and the name of the course.

{{username}} — the students' first and last names mentioned in the “Overview” tab.

{{course_name}} — the course name that you can edit on the course page.

Additionally, you can add the names of course instructors and issue date.

The language of the certificate depends on the selected language of the instructor’s personal account in SendPulse.

Save and Assign the Certificate to Your Course

Having finished customizing your certificate, click Create.

Enter the name of the certificate — this name will be displayed only in your personal account.

Select the course upon completion of which you want to issue the created certificate. If the course already has a certificate, the new certificate will be applied to it.

Manage Certificates

You can always return to the certificate settings, change its content, style, and assign it to another course.

To do this, go to the "Saved certificates" tab, and select one of the following actions:

Edit (opens the certificate builder where you can change the style and content of the certificate).

Duplicate (duplicates the style and content of the certificate and allows to assign it to another course).

Rename (renames the certificate in the certificate list).

Unlink (unlinks the certificate from the assigned course. Students will not receive the selected certificate upon completion of the course to which it was linked).

Delete (deletes the certificate. Students will not receive the selected certificate upon completion of the course to which it was linked).

You can assign a certificate to another course only after you have unlinked it from the first one.
