What Is a Certificate
A certificate is proof that you completed a learning path in Cloud Academy. Certificates are a great way to show your skills, demonstrate your knowledge, and build your credibility when you include them in your resume and LinkedIn profile. Below is an example of a certificate.
Note: The number of continuing professional education (CPE) credits appears only in enterprise accounts that have been configured to calculate them.
How to Download a Certificate

Use these steps to download the certificate:
- From the dashboard, click Completed Content.
A list of all the content you have completed appears, including learning paths, labs, exams, and courses.
- Click the learning path whose certificate you want to download to open it. Note: Certificates are available for learning paths only. The following steps won't work if you choose something here that isn't a learning path.
The overview screen for the completed learning path appears.

A new tab opens in your browser containing the certificate. From here you can use the PDF viewer to print or download the file.
