NOTE: This plugin is no longer receiving any new features. Only bug fixes are being applied. I have been working on a new plugin which can be located at which allows complete customisation of the PDF via the browser, whereas this plugin requires FTP and PHP knowledge. Both plugins can be installed on a site at once with no issues.

See the certificate docs for information on how to customise your certificate and for additional help please visit the certificate forums.

    Hi there!!

    Is there a way to add some "locking options" so the users can get the certificate only if they finish a course?

    Hello, I am new to Moodle, and really like it. I have a question. I have a certificate of completion that is in a pdf format. I currently use a custom app for my students profiles and pull a couple of fields from it to populate the certificates and print them out. I have installed the certificate plug-in. Is there a way to pull two fields from Moodle (name and a custom field) to a pdf and be able to print it out? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, when i generate the certificate, it downloads blank .pdf. What could be the reason? Am I doing something wrong? I am using Moodle 3.1.8. Is that the reason? Thanks

    Hi, i have a query about generating certificate just after course completion. I want to know how can we generate a certificate if any student attends and qualify a course?

    Hello, I have a small problem with this module, in some installations it does not save the certificate correctly to be able to download it later (link to download generate certificate) although in the configuration it is configured to save them and , and when I clic in certificate link as administrator, it opens the certificate directly in pdf (page mod/certificate/view.php?id=xxx) instead of sending me to the page with the "get certificate" button and i need type "mod/certificate/report.php?id=xxx" to view generated certificates in course, and also i cant downloads it because is not link to pdf archive).

    This is a bit freak because it only happens in two moodle installations in two diferent servers (the same in both):

    - Moodle 3.0 (with mod certificate 2015111602)
    - Moodle 3.4 (with mod cetificate 2016052300)

    In the rest of the installations in the same servers works perfectly, would someone know why it could be? I have been testing for a long time and I have not found the solution.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi, we have been advised to contact you regarding this plugin, to find out if it is GDPR compliant? Many thanks

    Hi Penny,

    This plugin is not GDPR compliant. However, if someone wants to create a privacy provider I will happily merge it.

    Just a note - is GDPR compliant.

    Ho un piccolo problema. Come mai se imposto che per avere il certificato il tempo minimo deve essere di 1200 minuti lo fa scaricare comunque a tutti i partecipanti del corso? Inoltre quali devono essere le giuste misure per inserire un logo oppure una firma?
