Downloading a Certificate of Completion

This article covers how users can download a certificate of completion (diploma) from the Employee Training Center to validate their completion of a required course or curriculum for IT Training classes.

Please note that it can take 5 minutes or so for a certificate of completion to be generated after you complete a training.

Did you get an email from the Employee Training Center with a confirmation that you completed a course? Feel free to forward that email to [email protected] in lieu of downloading a certificate of completion.

Please note that this option is not enabled for all PeopleSoft/ERP courses at this time, so if you did not receive a completion email, you can still follow the instructions below to download a certificate.
