What should every project management certificate contain?

These are the necessary elements each project management certificate should contain:

  • Issuer’s logo — Choose top, bottom, or corners;
  • Issuer’s branding elements — Unobtrusive placement, subtle and semi-transparent design elements, and colors that go well together;
  • Certificate title — What you chose to call the project management course;
  • Official statement — Declaring that the recipient has indeed completed the necessary tasks and passed certain tests to obtain the certificate;
  • Recipient’s full name — Placed prominently, in the middle, below the (optional) recipient’s photo;
  • Date of issuing — Add an expiration date too, if applicable;
  • Issuing location/ educator — Facility/ person that issues the certificate, their city, and country;
  • Full names of the involved parties — Recipients, educators, and responsible parties, along with designated spots for their signatures;
  • Certificate validation elements — Certificate ID, QR code, or verification links, to prove the certificate is legitimate; 

Optionally, you can also add:

  • Course details — Briefly describe what kind of knowledge and capabilities they have now that they have completed your course, and what they’re certified to do;
  • Recipient’s photo — You can personalize certificates with the recipient’s photos.

Or, go digital and make your brand truly visible. 

If you offer project management courses for working professionals, providing them with a verifiable digital certificate benefits you both.

Displaying a project management certificate on LinkedIn significantly enhances recipients’ professional profiles. They can showcase their project management expertise, and be more attractive to potential employers that value their credentials. 

You, on the other hand, can organically build your authority on the subject matter, enhance the brand image, and grow your business. As a bonus, your certificates can’t be faked: each has a special ID for verification.

Our Free Digital Certificate Maker helps coaches, educators, institutions and organizations stand out — take for a spin and have a taste of all the features!
