If you want, you can open the certificate in "Thrive Architect" and change the existing template, or customize it:

Then, if you want to change the template and load a different one from the template library, you can do that as well.

For that, you need to access the template library:

Here, you can simply browse the list and pick a different template for your certificate:

Each certificate template has information such as the course title, teacher name, student name, a QR code, completion date and many more. This is dynamic data that will change according to the student to which this certificate is issued.

Lastly, while you are still on the "Course completion" tab of your selected course, use the URL from here if you want to provide the direct link to auto-download a certificate:

As mentioned in the above image, the certificates can be downloaded from the course completion page, as long as the "Issue course completion certificate" toggle is enabled. Therefore, make sure this toggle is active to give your students the possibility of downloading the completion certificate when they finish a course.

This were the steps for enabling the course completion certificate feature.
