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.

    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

    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

    Hi Marini, thank you. There is no such functionality at the moment but feel free to create an issue in the tracker (the link is above)

    Hi Marina,

    Is there a way to make this happen when the certificate is saved or printed, it gets the actual course name rather than the certificate file name?

    Remember, there is the ISSUE TRACKER for reporting bugs and suggesting improvements:
    It will properly notify you when anybody else makes comment on your issue. It is also the best way to reach developers.

    And, Mark, you can actually find there that exactly the same issue has already been created
