Troubleshooting & help
I finished my course but I still can’t access my certificate of completion. How come?
In order to receive your certificate of completion, each curriculum item must be marked as complete. Double-check the course curriculum in the course player to make sure each lecture and course item has a checkmark beside it and is marked as complete.

I’ve completed my course and the trophy has changed color, but when I click on it, I can’t see a certificate. Why?
Occasionally the system may need a few moments to generate a certificate of completion, after a course has been completed. Wait a couple of minutes and then try clicking on the trophy again. You may also need to refresh the page, or clear your cache and cookies, in order to see your certificate.
Do all courses offer certificates of completion?
No. Currently only paid, approved courses offer a certificate of completion. Free courses and courses that only include practice tests do not offer a certificate of completion.
If you have enrolled in a free course prior to March 17, 2020 you will retain access to your certificate of completion for those free courses only.
