What Are Teachable Certificates of Completion for?
You can provide certificates of completion as long as you are subscribed to the Teachable Pro, Pro +, or Business plan. Unfortunately, this feature is not available on the free and Basic plans.
Teachable certificates of completion offer a way to reward your students for their hard work.
When your students complete a course, they can receive one of these certificates. Each one contains a unique serial number and can be downloaded if required.
These certificates also offer a convenient way for students to provide proof to others that they have completed a course.
What Are Some Examples of Teachable Certificates of Completion?
There are currently three different templates that you can use to create certificates of completion:
Template one is a patterned design with all the essential information included.
Template two provides a plain white certificate.
Template three is the same as template two but with the addition of a thick border.
For those with LIQUID/HTML knowledge, it is also possible to create a custom-designed certificate for Teachable.
How to Create a Teachable Certificate (Step by Step)
Step 1: Log into your Teachable school and select “Courses” from the sidebar menu. Then, from the sub-menu that appears, select “Certificates.” Next, click on one of the “New Certificate” buttons.
Step 2: Choose a template option from the pop-up that appears and select “Next.”
Step 3: In the editing screen, customize your certificate by uploading your logo and adding a title and text. You can also upload a signature if you wish.
Step 4: Clicking on the “Design” tab will allow you to customize the colors of the certificate.
When you are done, you can select “Preview” in the top right corner to see the finished result. If you are happy with how it looks, click “Finish.”
Step 5: Finally, a pop-up will ask if you want to activate the certificate. If you select “Yes,” students will start receiving the certificate once they complete the course. If you select “No,” the certificate design will be saved for later use.
