Introduction to Certificates

Awarding certificates to learners is a powerful motivator and gives them a sense of achievement. You can add them to any Sensei course and customise them to give the look and feel you want.

Default Certificate Template

The certificates plugin comes with a default certificate template which you can use right away if you don't want to have to create one yourself.

Customising the Certificate Template

If you don't want to use the default template you can create your own template. Customisation options include uploading your own background images and adding your own text as well as changing the layout and format of the text.

Awarding Certificates

When users complete a course they will be awarded a certificate which they can view on the course page or the My Courses page. The certificate is a pdf document which will open in the web browser and can be downloaded, saved, and printed.
