The system is capable of generating a certificate for Users when they complete a training module.
Select ‘Certificates’ from within the ‘Settings’ tab.
Certificates are created in PDF format and automatically completed with the details of the trainee. It is necessary to create and upload a Certificate Template in PDF format; if you do not know how to create a PDF, please contact a member of our support team via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Select ‘Create certificate’ to start creating the certificate.
Give your certificate an identifiable name.
Select the locale, i.e. the regional setting the training will be in, English, French, German etc.
Choose the terminology type. This field names the certificate to the terminology you wish it to have i.e. certificate, receipt, license etc.
Upload the pre-made PDF.
Click on ‘Create certificate’.
The LMS will automatically detect, from the pre-made PDF, the available fields.
Choose the corresponding fields using the pre-defined drop-down menus. These will be displayed in the final printed/exported version of the PDF certificate.
