Hello, I must say a Big Thank you for making this course available. I just completed the self-paced course, and thankfully I got my certificate. But, quite unfortunately the certificate carries only my First name omitting my last name. what can be done about that please?

Dear Samuel,
The reason the certificate only shows your first name is that you only put your first name in your profile. I have edited your profile to include your last name for you. Please redownload your certificate now. Thank you.

Others people get the certificate with authorized signature but I didn’t. Please give my certificate with authorized signature.
Thank you.

Dear Milan,
Thank you for your comment. The reason that others received certificates with signatures is they enrolled in the Massive Open Online course and completed their course deliverables within a tight time frame. Now that this is a self-paced course, the certificates do not contain signatures. Thank you for being part of the LfN community and let me know if you have any other questions.

Hola, me gustaría que mi certificado estuviera completo con las firmas, les agradecería si pueden corregirlo gracias.

Gracias por su comentario, Leidy. La razón por la que otros recibieron certificados con firmas es que se inscribieron en el curso masivo abierto en línea y completaron sus productos del curso dentro de un marco de tiempo apretado. Ahora que este es un curso propio, los certificados no contienen firmas. Gracias por formar parte de la comunidad LfN y hágame saber si tiene alguna otra pregunta.
