I completed a course but cannot locate my Completion Certificate. How do I find my completion certificate(s) in REPORTER?

  2. Once logged in, scroll to the bottom of your ‘My Courses’ dashboard and locate the section labeled “Completed Activities”. Click on the section title to expand it.
  3. At the top of the section, click the option to “View Training Summary
  4. A window should open displaying a list of the courses you have completed. Locate the relevant completion record in this list and click to select it.
  5. Then, at the top of the window, click the option to “Download Completion Certificate” — you should then be prompted to save the PDF document download.

*Note* If the instance of a course you completed does not result in a certificate of completion, you will receive an error message at this point.

Missed completion

What should I do if I am missing completion credit?

If you are registered in REPORTER, completion credit varies depending on the type of instance you completed. 

A. ‘I am missing credit for a course I completed online, at my own pace’; If the instance was completed online, at your own pace completion credit varies depending on what online system you completed the training in. Please select the appropriate variation below to go to the relevant information:

The online content was completed in Moodle (the URL included
The online content was completed in EVERFI (the URL included
The online content was complete at my own pace in another system that did not include “” nor “”


B.  If you attended an in-person training or event  OR  If you virtually attended at specific time(s) and date(s)

If the course was registered for in REPORTER, you will only be able to see courses you’ve completed if final attendance has been entered for that class.  If you are not seeing completion credit for a something after it has taken place, you should check to confirm if the final attendance has been entered by looking at your Final Attendance status for the course (as seen here).

Final attendance is entered by the individual administrators and instructors of that specific session, and the credit for completing depends on that entry. If your final attendance status is empty, and it has been less than a week since the last day of the course, we advise waiting a few more days to see if the status gets updated.

If it has been longer than a week, if you have concerns about waiting for a week, or if you have an unexpected status of “Incomplete”, “Fail”, or “No Show”, please reach out to the primary contact for the training. That contact information can be seen at the bottom of any registration emails you received, and can also be found in your account’s activity report as seen here.

Participants will need to get in touch with an admin or instructor for the course to ask about getting final attendance recorded.

Missed completion – External LMS

What should I do if I am missing completion credit?: If completing content online in another system

The instance corresponds to online content completed outside of REPORTER. Completions  records are managed by the course owners who will periodically upload the records into  REPORTER to indicate completion. Because the completions are managed by the course owners, the delay between completing the online content and when that completion is reflected in REPORTER will vary.

Typically the delay time will be indicated in the instance details that you can see by clicking the View Details option in your REPORTER Upcoming Courses section. At the top of the window you will see the primary contact for the course, who you can reach out to for additional assistance.
