All learning on Alison is free. After you successfully complete a course, you are given the option to purchase a digital or printed Certificate to prove your achievement.

Purchasing a Certificate is simple.

I access Alison via my computer:

Step 1. Check your name on the Certificate

Start by going to the Shop and checking your name on the certificate.

Please double-check that your name is spelled correctly. If you double-check your spelling now, you'll avoid errors โ€“ and the extra costs of making corrections later on!

Just click on the Edit Name button to check and update your name:

Correct name and click Update:

Step 2. Choose the Course

You will see a screen displaying all your available and purchased certificates.

  • Unclaimed Certificates: This section lists all completed courses for which you have not yet purchased certificates.

  • Claimed Certificates: This section contains your claimed certificates, order details, options to download your certificate and transcript, and the option to purchase the certificate parchment.

Scroll to locate and select the course for which you wish to purchase a certificate.
