Let’s cut right to the chase.  I will do an introduction to the free certificate maker tool and share the instructions, but you can jump directly to it here.

Sending certificates is a MUST for every serious educational provider.

A certificate is the spearhead of a successful training, course, or seminar.  

The last touch point that your participant has with your educational service.  

On the one hand certificates create a sense of value and legitimacy for the knowledge and qualification that you are giving to your participants.  

On the other hand, they are a vehicle that allows its recipients to efficiently communicate their newly acquired skills to recruiters or HR departments.  

That’s why it was only a matter of time until this core process also joins the digital world with digital certificates.

The wrong processes burns your time, money, and reputation

However, talking to more than 1000 of educators, it was incredibly surprising for us to learn how many certificates are still being created manually.  

MS Word, PowerPoint or even design tools such as Canva and Photoshop are used to create each individual certificate.

Even though you most likely know this process, let me try to guess your certification process here:  

After your course, seminar or training has taken place, you create templates, replace the names, save them and print each certificate or send them directly as a standard PDF file, one by one.  

Multiply this process times 10, 20 or 30 certificates and it proves to be wildly inefficient and time-consuming.  

We know that an advanced and professional solution such as Virtualbadge.io that allows you to digitally manage QR-code verifiable certificates that integrate into professional social media (e.g., LinkedIn) is not made for the beginning.

Still our team believes that everybody deserves a solution that at the very least saves a lot of time on manual certificate creation.  

Therefore, we took the time and resources to develop a free certificate generator tool for your business where you can automatically create hundreds of certificates within seconds. And the best part: 100% for free. No strings attached, no catch, just pure value.  

We want you to grow and to reach the point where we become a relevant provider for your digital certificates.  

With this free tool you can automatically create 100s of personalized certificates with one click.  

Enjoy your new business standard tool.
