5. Share your digital certificates

Once you complete all of the training content and reach the final assessment, you will be awarded with a Certificate of Attendance which details the accredited hours /units for the training.

It also proves to your boss that you really have done all the hard work!

Successfully passing a final assessment will award you with a further Certificate of Excellence to share on your LinkedIn profile or simply download in a printable format.

There is always space on the fridge after all!
