All courses in the Udemy for Business content collection come with a Udemy certificate of completion.
When all the curriculum items of a course have been completed, a green trophy will appear above the course player, and you will see a notification indicating the certificate of completion is ready. Click on the trophy to view the certificate.
Please note: unlike the course taking experience via the Udemy marketplace, lectures cannot be marked as complete and the course progress cannot be reset.
The certificate will look something like this:
Udemy for Business is not an accredited institution, but we offer skills-based courses taught by experts in their field.
**Some of these features may not be available in your Udemy for Business account.
Certificate of Completion: Commonly Asked Questions
Below are commonly asked questions we receive regarding certificates of completion.
I finished my course but I still can’t access my certificate of completion. How come?
In order to receive your certificate of completion, each curriculum item must be marked as complete. Double check the course curriculum in the course player to make sure each lecture and course item has a checkmark beside it and is marked as complete.
I’ve completed my course and the trophy has appeared, but when I click on it, I can’t see a certificate. Why?
Occasionally the system may need a few moments to generate a certificate of completion after a course has been completed. Wait a couple of minutes and then try clicking on the trophy again. You may also need to refresh the page, or clear your cache and cookies, in order to see your certificate.
How can I change the language of my certificate of completion?
Certificates of completion are generated in the same language that is set for your account. If you need to change the language of your certificate, however, you can easily do so by following these steps:
1. When all of the curriculum items of a course have been completed, click the trophy on the course page to access your certificate.
2. Click on Update your certificate at the bottom right.
3. Select the language you wish to change your certificate to and click Save Changes.
4. We will send you an email to confirm when your updated certificate is ready. Please note it may take a few minutes to update the certificate’s language. You may need to refresh the page in order to see your updated certificate.
My certificate has my account’s username on it, instead of my real name. How can I change it?
Certificates of Completion are generated using whatever name you entered when you created your Udemy account. If your organization allows users to edit their profile information, including their account name, then please follow the steps below to change the name on your certificate.
If you cannot edit your profile information, however, and you access your Udemy for Business account via SSO, please contact your organization’s IT team regarding your request. If you do not access your account via SSO, and your organization does not allow users to edit their profile, then please contact our Support Team for assistance.
If you need to change the certificate’s name, and you can edit your profile information, navigate to your certificate and click on Update your certificate as shown above.
Next, click Update your profile name to proceed to your profile page. Change your name there to what you want included on your certificate, and click Save. Then click Save changes on the certificate page to reset your certificate.
We will send you an email to confirm when your updated certificate is ready. Please note it may take a few minutes to update the certificate’s name. You may need to refresh the page in order to see your updated certificate.
Can I change the formatting of my certificate of completion? Or add an image?
Unfortunately, certificates are created using a template, and there is no way to change the formatting for them at this time. If you would like to submit this as a feature request, please do so by clicking here.
Do I need to complete the lectures in order?
No. You can receive your certificate of completion once all the lectures and course items are marked as complete, regardless of what order you completed them in.
