Customizing Your Academy’s Certificates

In Schoox, certificates are automatically awarded whenever a student successfully completes a course. As an academy Administrator, you are able not only to customize the look of the certificate used within your academy but also to create custom certificates per brand.

Customize your Academy Certificate

To customize your certificate, hover over the Admin tab in the top navigation bar, and click Academy Settings.


Then, under Your Academy, select Custom Certificate.


On the page that appears, you can choose between three types of certificates — Standard, Custom, or Advanced Custom.

Standard Certificates

If the look of the certificate does not matter, you can choose the standard certificate option. This will provide the learner with a Schoox branded certificate whenever they complete a course, learning path, or event in your academy, highlighting the specifics of the completed content.

Custom Certificates

Selecting Custom Certificate, you can also customize the certificate’s style and color. You are also able to upload your logo and your signature to appear on the certificate. Last but not least, you can select if you want to add a custom badge, the default one, or if you want to completely remove the badge icon from the certificate.


If you select to add a custom badge to your certificate, you have the option to customize the badge as well. You can adjust the colors, icon, badge shape, or even add your own image!


When you are finished, make sure to apply the settings by clicking Save. After saving, you will be able to preview your changes by clicking Preview Certificate.

Create Custom Certificates per Brand

While within the Above Units list, locate the appropriate Above Unit, and click its associated Edit Brand.

Select Configure Certificate by Brand option and decide whether you want to have a custom certificate for your brand or not. If you want to have a custom certificate for the selected brand, apply the changes based on your needs and Save at the bottom of the page.

Advanced Custom Certificates

You also have the option to upload your own design completely. To learn more, please refer to this article, as the process is a bit more complex.


Please note:

  • The results that the user may end up seeing may differ depending on their org structure and the settings you have applied for your Brand. For more information please check also : Labeling an Above Unit as a Brand
  • The uploaded image’s ratio should be 400x480 pixels.
  • A certificate will always reflect the course's title. If a courses title changes, it will also change on all certificates awarded — past, present, and future. This means what is shown on a certificate may change retroactively.
