So, i’m pretty sure by now all of you guys know about certificates. They are virtual certificates given to a user when they complete a course or a skill path. Certificates are only given to those who upgrade to the premium plan.
I’ve been trying to complete the “Learn What to Learn” course and when i saw they grant a certificate for completion, this question immediately popped in my mind:
Let’s say you complete a course in the free plan that will grant a certificate when completed in the premium plan, then after a while you decide to upgrade to the premium plan. Will you earn certificates for the courses you completed previously in the free plan if they grant one?
Any answers will be appreciated. Thanks!
Whatever courses you complete that have a certificate will all be featured and downloadable on your CC profile. Anything that you complete appears on your profile.
Yeah, but if you complete a course that grants a certificate and you’re on a free plan, then switch to pro, will you automatically gain the certificates for the courses you completed in the free plan, or are certificates only accessible if you complete a course on a pro plan?
Thanks for the answer!
Yes. Any course that you start is connected to your profile.
Did you check the Help section?
That doesn’t quite answer my question in some way. When you finish a course (that grants a certificate) on a free plan, then change to the pro plan, will you get the certificate for when you completed it on a free course?
You might’ve just read the question as “Does Codecademy give certificates on a free plan? Are they only available on a pro plan?” The actual question is does Codecademy give certificates when you later switch to pro when you completed a course (that grants a certificate) on the free plan?
Thanks for the answer! Appreciate it.
(I think i’ve might’ve accidentally flagged your post. Sorry about that! I like to play with my mouse sometimes.)
Is there a specific course that you’re referring to here?
Yes. Any course that you complete that grants a certificate is connected to your profile id. It doesn’t matter if you’re on the free or pro plan—you will get the certificate (if you’ve completed the course). All the work you do is connected to your profile id and all the courses that you’ve started or completed appear on your profile.
Thank you! To answer your question, there is no specific “course” i’m referring to, but rather any course that grants a certificate when you complete it.
This topic is solved. Thanks for contributing!
