A certificate of completion is a certificate that is awarded to a person, as and when, he or she, completes a certain course. From trade and vocational schools to colleges that offer short term courses and training in a variety of fields, there are many programs for which these certificates are awarded. The certificate serves as proof that the person in question, has in fact, completed training in the program mentioned. Such certificates may also be awarded by colleges and organizations for seminars on corporate training and day-long resource sessions. Templates can be extremely helpful for organizations that are looking at creating these certificates to award to participants in their courses.
Since these certificates can at times decide how a person's professional life turns out, it is important to draft these certificates properly. While these certificates may not guarantee a person a job, they can definitely help strengthen their case with a prospective employer. You do not want any confusion to crop up due to improperly-worded certificates. Given below are three different templates, that you can use while drafting your certificate of completion.

Depending on what your requirement is, you may be needed to use different types of templates. The ones given here can be modified as you need. The certificate of completion is different from certificate of achievement in such that the content is different. Most organizations that give out certificates of completion may also need certificate of achievements for the top students. With any such certificate, there are some details that are constant. These include the name of the person to whom the certificate is being given, the reason for which the person is being awarded the certificate, and a sign of the person who is authorized to give out the certificates.
