You can edit the title of each template. For example, instead of “Certificate of Completion” you can write “Certificate of Substantial Completion” or “Training Completion Certificate”. On the templates with colored ribbons you can also select the award ribbon.
A certificate of completion is often awarded by a school, organization or institution for completing a course, class or academic program. The award can be presented to students for passing the course or simply for attending if no examination was required. Most institutions require a minimum level of attendance in order to be eligible.
What information should a certificate of completion template include?
You can customize the award in any way you see fit but we suggest that you include the following information: the name of the institution presenting the award, the name of the recipient, the name of the course or program completed, the signature of the person with the authority to issue the certificate and the date. You can add additional information such as the level achieved, the duration of the program or a summary of the syllabus. To create a professional looking template include your school or institution’s logo. To add a logo click on the image icon.
