When you click on "Download Certificate" after you complete your evaluation for each activity, the PDF will download to your computer. Windows users, look down at the left corner of your screen for the download link. Mac users, look in your Downloads folder. In some browsers, you will find a download icon in the browser menu area. If you don't see download icons or links, you can use your computer's search function to search for the name of the downloaded file. The file name should include the name of the course. If you have trouble finding your downloaded certificate, sort your download folder items by date modified with most recent on top.
