LearnPress Certificates Integration is an important add-on that cannot be missed on your eLearning websites. It assists you in issuing course completion certificates to your students, giving them a sense of accomplishment and recognition for their hard work.
In this beginner’s guide, we will walk you through the detailed process of integrating certificates into your LearnPress courses.
Why Use LearnPress Certificates Integration
There are numerous benefits for both you as an instructor and your students using the LearnPress Certificates add-on, such as:

How LearnPress Certificates Integration Works
The LearnPress Certificates Add-on is a powerful tool that enables you to generate and distribute certificates to your students seamlessly. Let’s dive into the details of how this add-on works:
To create a certificate, you have two options: design your own certificate or use one of the available templates. Designing your own certificate gives you the flexibility to customize every aspect, ensuring a unique and personalized touch. Alternatively, you can choose from a range of pre-designed templates and customize them to suit your needs.
To combat the possibility of fake certificates, the LearnPress Certificate Add-on includes a verification feature. Each certificate created has a unique verification link. When a student shares their certificate with a third party, such as an employer or school staff, the recipient can easily verify its authenticity by following the verification link.
Assigning Certificates to Courses
Once you have created your certificates, it’s time to assign them to your LearnPress courses. In the Course Settings section, under the Certificate tab, you can select the relevant certificate for each course. So your students receive the appropriate certificate upon completion of their chosen course.
