It would be helpful to be able to customize the certificates that training participants receive after completing the training. The following will make the certificates better:
Very good point @VRLDO !!
Can the certificates be revised in order to be customized? I have been an organizer with GoTo since 2015 and have periodically requested customizable certificates.
I work in the health sciences as an approved continuing education provider for registered nurses in the U.S. and also in my area of specialty, which is board-certified. One criterion for this approval is to provide a certificate of completion for on-demand training or a certificate of attendance for live events. There is specific information that must be listed on the certificate, including the date of training/completion, the number of continuing education hours awarded, and the approval codes from each of the two bodies that approve my training each year.
This is an aspect of medical compliance in all 50 states for those who are licensed in the health sciences, in that a license to practice in one's state must be renewed annually, and the renewal process includes the requirement to complete a specified number of approved continuing education hours each year. This applies to any healthcare professional who must be licensed in order to legally practice in any of the 50 U.S. states, including physicians, nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, dieticians, and so on.
Furthermore, strict record-keeping is necessary in the event of an audit, so I maintain electronic records as well as paper records in the event of an audit. My credentialing body reserves the right to audit the training records of continuing education providers every six years, another aspect of medical compliance in my profession. My record-keeping as a continuing education provider includes the time spent by each attendee in the live trainings, as well as the test that each attendee must complete and the evaluation tool. Those reports are available to GoTo organizers, but trainers do not currently have the ability to customize the certificates.
Another important aspect of customizable certificates is the ability to customize when the certificates are sent out. This is currently available in part, but there is not yet a way in which to customize the timeline for sending the certificates so that they are sent out electronically ONLY if the test and the evaluation tool have been submitted.
In order to work around this constraint, I have been sending out individual certificates via email ONLY when I can document that the test and evaluation tool have been received from each registrant/attendee. I have been doing this work-around since September 2015.
These improvements would be very much appreciated. Please advise if there are customizable certificates on the horizon.
