VTA Online Certificate – 2017 Update

Since VTA 8.0 got such a great makeover, we decided to spruce up the Online Certificate program, its instructions and templates.
There are other ways to associate or generate a completion certificate in VTA. For example:
•A modified Attendance Report can create a certificate for each student.
