Using the Templates

Any time you deliver a new class, simply open the template that you've created and change the course name, date, and other relevant information. You'll be ready to print a certificate for each attendee in no time at all. Since the certificates already contain nice borders, there is no need to print them on fancy paper. For added durability, print on lightweight cardstock paper, which is slightly thicker than regular printer paper.

Simplifying Training Documentation

It's important to provide training participants with a certificate of attendance following completion of seminars, workshops or other types of classes. Setting up a template that you can quickly edit any time you need to produce certificates of completion for trainees is a great way to simplify the process. Just be sure that each attendee receives a certificate that looks nice enough to frame and that can also be placed in his or her personnel file as documentation of employee development efforts.
