Brillium has the ability to present a certificate to a respondent at the end of an assessment. This certificate can either be a generic design, provided by Brillium, or a custom design provided by the customer. Custom designed certificates do require both one-time development and on-going monthly maintenance fees, unless already included in your service contract.
Configuring a Certificate with a Generic Design
To begin configuring a certificate with an included generic design, edit the Advanced Options of your assessment from the Assessment Control Panel on the Assessment Editor page. Scroll down to the "Certificate Options" portion of the page.
- Choose the Certificate Presentation setting. Options include displaying the certificate at the end of the assessment and/or emailing a copy of the certificate (in PDF format) to the respondent automatically upon completion.
- Enter the Certificate Name. This name will often be shown on the certificate and usually represents what the respondent has been certified in.
- Choose a Certificate Logo Resource. The image you wish to use should be uploaded already using the Resource Manager from the Home page of your Brillium account. If you wish to use an image hosted on your own website, you can do that by clicking the Use External button and providing the publicly-accessible URI to the file (for example "http://mysite.com/myimage.png"). The image file will be sized when it is placed on the certificate. We recommend a maximum size of 780 x 390 pixels for use on our generic certificate styles. A transparent PNG file is best used here.
- Enter a Certificate Credit Statement, if applicable. This often says something like "earning 2.0 C.P.E credits" or something to that nature. If you choose to leave this blank, this line simply won't display on the respondent's certificate.
- Enter a Certificate Signature Resource. This is usually a scanned image of the issuing person's signature. However, it can be any image. We recommend a maximum size of 900 x 180 pixels for this image. A transparent PNG file is best used here.
- Lastly, enter a Certificate Signature Name. This is usually the printed name of the person whose signature has just been provided in image format.
Once configured as shown above, the respondent will see the following upon successfully passing the assessment.
When they click on the "Click Here To Print Your Certificate" button (or whatever you relabeled it), they will be presented with a PDF looking similar to the one shown below.
If you elected to email the certificate to the respondent, they will receive an exact copy of this PDF file as an attachment in their email.
Custom Designed Certificates
If you would like to have Ingenious Group implement a custom designed certificate, please provide your sales representative with the following information.
- A PDF file showing a filled-out version of your custom designed certificate. It should represent exactly what you would like the certificate to look like with the images, backgrounds, signatures, and a sample person's information showing in the dynamic text areas (i.e. those places that will change from respondent to respondent).
- Another PDF file with all the dynamic text areas removed. In other words, a template we can use to start with and lay the dynamic fields on top of. Images within the PDF should be a minimum of 300dpi.
- Information we will need to populate the dynamic text areas. If you are pulling information from custom fields, we need to know which custom fields should appear where on the certificate.
- Details regarding the formatting of any dates on the certificate. Do you want "March 21, 2013", "3/21/2013", or "2013-03-21"?
Email these details to your sales representative or firstname.lastname@example.org if you don't know who that is.
