This plugin allows users to create certificate templates on the system and course category levels. Certificate templates can have user fields such as user name, profile picture, etc, and also additional dynamic fields that are added by the issuer (through API).

The built-in interface allows users to issue certificates manually and browse the issued certificates.

A verification code / link / QR code can be added to the certificate template. Certificates can be verified by unauthenticated users even on sites with forced login and no guest access.

Other plugins can depend on this plugin to issue certificates based on some criteria, for example Course certificates (mod_coursecertificate) is an activity module that will automatically issue certificates when the student satisfies the access restrictions. The mod_coursecertificate plugin will send the course name and completion information to the tool_certificate plugin, so if these fields are included in the template, they will be displayed on the certificate.

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.

    Is it possible to set an expiry date on a certificate to be a set period of time after completion? We are looking to add this for a child safety course for volunteers who work with children, and would like to have them resit the qualification every 12 months. Volunteers will sit the course when they join the organisation, and if I join in November, I don't want to have it expire on the 31st December for example.

    Thanks in advance

    So the word "certificate" is turned into a hyperlink in the pdf document, I don't understand how this happens since it is a "text" element, how can I disable it turning into a hyperlink to the course certificate page?

    Hello, I also use this plugin, but font selection is not made in the serial, how can I add Turkish fonts? Turkish Characters seem problematic.

    I have 5 professors for 5 courses, one from each educational institution.
    I want to know if it is possible to create a different certificate for each institution, and a professor does not see the certificate of others.
    Detail: All courses are created by the administrator.
    Is there any way to hide other certificate templates?

    You can place courses and certificates in different course categories. The teacher will only be able to see the certificates in the categories containing the current course

    Hi, Marina
    From what I understand in the tutorial, the certificate is selected by category and subcategory, but I need it to be by course, because each teacher has their course and I wouldn't want a teacher to view the other models than yours.
    It's possible? Where can I find tutorial for this?
