Customer Story - Improve Training with Custom Certificates

Customer Story - Improve Training with Custom Certificates
June 21, 2011

Are you looking for another way to provide value and recognition to those who complete your course or presentation? Would you like to generate additional interest in your program and expand your audience? Wouldn't it be great if more of your trainees had a reminder of the key points of your session hanging on their workspace walls? Don't forget to add a custom certificate to your next Brainshark presentation, which has been very effective for me.

Custom certificates are completion certificates that allow you to control the design and add personalized data such as the participant's name, the course name, the date, and much more. Certificates are tied to completion criteria - you as the author decide what it takes to earn the certificate. You can set it up to be displayed by users on demand or you can have it auto-launch when the participant closes the presentation window. You already spent the time choosing the perfect graphics and messages. Now, simply reuse a signature image from your design to create a lasting takeaway. Here is an example of what I'm talking about:

You can also find room to subtly summarize a key training point, or reference a website where additional information can be accessed. Not everyone finds equal value in a printed completion certificate, but many people do appreciate this token of recognition and accomplishment. When individuals hang your certificate in their cubicle or office wall, they're proudly endorsing your course and spreading the word for you.
