Create a Branded Training Certificate

When your users complete their assigned training content, they will have the option to download a training certificate. You can customize these training certificates by creating and uploading custom background images that match your organization’s brand, such as an image with your organization’s brand colors and logo. By branding your training certificates, you can provide your users with a familiar learning experience. 

Tip:You can also use our Brandable Content feature in the ModStore to customize your users’ training content. For more information, see our Brandable Content article.

Creating Branded Certificates

To create a branded certificate, you can use one of our templates or create your own certificate. You can customize elements on the certificate by adding your organization’s logo, choosing specific font colors, and adding a background image.

Important:You will not be able to change the font size, color, or position for the text that is automatically generated from your KMSAT console. This text includes the user's first name and last name, the training course name, the expected duration of the course, the date when the training was completed, and confirmation that the user accepted a policy if applicable.

To create your branded certificate, follow the steps below:

  1. Download one of our certificate templates from the Certificate Templates section below or create your own template. Please note that your template must meet the requirements listed in step 3 below.
  2. Customize the template. When you customize the template, make sure to include the following elements:
    • A heading, such as "Certificate of Achievement".
    • A black line where the user's name will be added.
    • Additional text, such as "has successfully completed".
    Important:The elements in our templates align with text that is automatically generated from your KMSAT console, such as the user’s name. If you change the location of these elements in our templates, the elements may not align with the text.
  3. Before you upload your certificate, make sure that your certificate meets the following specifications:
    • The certificate must be saved as either a PNG or JPEG file. If you save your certificate as a PNG file, you will need to save the file as non-interlaced.
    • The certificate's dimensions must be 2200 x 1700 pixels.
    • The file size should be no larger than 5 MB.
