The course certificate module provides an opportunity for learners to celebrate achievements by obtaining certificates.

It allows you to choose from different certificate templates which will automatically display user data such as full name, course, etc.

Users will be able to download a PDF copy of the certificate themselves by accessing this activity, and there are options to send a PDF copy to them by email automatically.

If the template used on this activity contains a QR code, users will be able to scan it to validate their certificates.

The Course certificate plugin works together with the Certificate manager plugin (tool_certificate). The Certificate manager plugin has to be installed, it provides the API and UI for designing the certificate templates on system and course category level.

Moodle WorkplaceThis plugin has been contributed and is maintained by the Moodle Workplace team.

See the documentation page in the Moodle Workplace documentation site for more information. Please note that some of the features described in the documentation might be exclusive to Moodle Workplace.


This plugin is part of set Moodle Workplace.

    It would be nice to have a relative expiration date. Thanks

    How does this relate to the existing mod_customcert plugin? Was it developed in partnership with the team? Is there an upgrade path?

    It seems very odd that Moodle would develop and release a plugin that would 'compete' with such an established, high quality, plugin.

    hi Andrew, there are significant differences in the backend between these plugins, the main one is that tool_certificate defines certificates on system/category levels and not inside of the courses.
    You are welcome to continue using mod_customcert, they by no means conflict with each other.

    no, this is not the purpose of this plugin. You can use mod_customcert for it

    ...alternatively, you can give your trainer role/capability to manage course certificates in the course category

    Hi good moring
    the plugin is fantastic!!
    Does the administrator have the option to download all certificates?
    I do not see the option and it is very useful
    Thank you!
