VTA Online Certificate – 2018 Update


With a new year comes a VTA Online Certificate Program update!

You can provide students the ability to launch a completion certificate when they have completed all required Lessons of a course.

In 2017, I blogged when we added:

  • 6 History Class Session record fields (to increase the parameters you can use).
  • PDF Download buttons (to make it easier for Students to retrieve, save and /or print them).

What’s New for Certificates in 2018

In 2018, we added:

  • The first 10 Custom Categories values associated on a Student record.
  • A new sample template in the zip file.
