This certificate will be sent independently of any course-level certificates. If the certification includes courses that have their own completion certificate, the course completion certificates will continue to be sent.
  • None - There is no certificate for the certification.
  • Default - SmarterU's default certificate is generated. If a certificate has been uploaded for the account, that will be the default certificate used. If no account-level certificate exists, the SmarterU default certificate will be used.
  • Custom - You may upload a PDF that will be used to generate the certificate for the certification. The PDF may contain text, graphics, and fields for the learner's name, course name, course provider name, and completion date. Upon completion of the course, SmarterU will merge the information into the PDF to generate a completion certificate for the learner. Refer to Creating a Custom Certificate for more information.
