Manage Certificates

LearningCart allows you to easily create your own certificates of completion using Microsoft Word. To use this feature simply create a docx file with your desired layout. You can then type any of the variable names listed below (including brackets) into your document where you would like to insert that variable. When LearningCart generates certificates for your users it will automatically replace the variable with the correct value before presenting the certificate to your users.

Certificates can be made available when a user completes either an entire course or a specific course content item. For information on how to assign a certificate to a course or content item please see Add a Courses or Add Learning Content.

You can add as many different certificates as you would like using the Certificates page which can be found under the Training section of the left hand admin navigation menu.  To add a certificate click the Add Certificate button in the top right hand corner, to edit a certificate click the Edit link nex to the appropriate certificate.  As you add certificates you will notice that a Preview link appears nex to each one allow you to quickly preview what your completed certificate will look like.
