How do I create a Certificate for my Certification/Course?
Posted by Nick Stuckey, Last modified by Prasad De Silva on 15 February 2021 02:57 AM

NetExam allows you to add a completion Certificate file to a Course or Certification. Users who successfully complete the Course or Certification can download these Certificates from the Student Site. These certificates can be personalized with the User's name, Course/Certification name and Completion date.

Procedure

    1. Create an Adobe PDF file of your certificate using Adobe Acrobat Writer, Photoshop or similar application.
    2. Create form fields on your PDF for each piece of data you would like to include. Be sure to mark each field as "read only" so that the user cannot alter the generated information. The form fields "Name" must be named as one of the following in order to pull data and are case sensitive:
        • nedate (The date the Course/Certification was completed)

        • nename (The User’s full name as entered into NetExam)

        • necourse (This will pull either the Course or Certification name depending on what this Certificate is applied to)

        • neusercertificationid (This will insert a unique numeric id to the Certificate that can be used to verify authenticity)

        • neexpiredate (The Date Certification expires)
