Why aren’t completion certificates available to all users?

Issuing a completion certificate is one way of verifying that a user has viewed online content. The Virtual Lab School professional development and resource system engages learners further by embedding interactive learning activities within the online content. By pairing opportunities for reflective practice and supervision with one-on-one interactions between learners and coaches, the VLS seeks to positively impact how professionals approach their work with children and families each and every day.

Individuals working in military child and youth programs receive this one-on-one support for their learning from military programs’ training and curriculum specialists. Training and curriculum specialists actively mentor staff at all stages of learning, as well as track progress and verify that learners have completed all learning activities prior to being issued a completion certificate.

We are actively exploring ways to offer this new approach to professional development to all Virtual Lab School users in the future.
