Qualified Certificate

Features A Qualified Certificate contains the participant’s photo and a supplement with detailed course information. The participant agrees to be proctored via webcam during the graded exercises and exams. With the help of this online proctoring technology, we determine that the registered user is taking the assignments and the final exam in person.

Besides the photo, the Qualified Certificate contains the following information:

  • Participant's name
  • Date of birth (optional)
  • Course title and summary
  • Credits earned
  • Course performance (information about whether the participant is part of the best 5%, 10% or 20% of all participants)
  • Anti-counterfeit link and QR code

If you have booked the Qualified Certificate you will additionally receive a Record of Achievement and a Certificate of Participation, as long as you have fulfilled the requirements.

ECTS credits
HPI recommends granting 2 ECTS credits for a Qualified Certificate.

If you intend to receive university credits for an openHPI course, please contact your examination officer first to make sure that your university accepts the certificate. We have prepared a sample certificate and an explanation to present to your examination office, which is available for download here:

Further information

Cost
HPI provides this service in cooperation with an external European partner, to whom HPI transmits only the photos. Only HPI is able to match the photos to the participant's data. Our partner performs an automatic face recognition and reports any deviations. This complete process results in costs for HPI. Therefore, we request a fee of 50 EUR (+ 19.0 % VAT = 59.50 EUR) per certificate in Germany. If you're a resident of another country prices may vary due to different tax rates.

Deadline
Please keep in mind that the setup process takes approximately 48 hours. During this time it is not possible to participate in weekly assignments, therefore we recommend that you book a Qualified Certificate early. Please check the deadlines for the weekly assignments and the final exam in your course and make sure that the setup is finished on time. We recommend calculating generously, as a variety of factors can slow down the registration process.

Registration period
It is still possible to register for a Qualified Certificate after completing the first weekly assignment, as long as its deadline has not passed. In general, this is at the beginning of the second week of the course.

Exclusion criteria
In case one of the following rules is violated, we will be unable to award the Qualified Certificate.

  • Make sure that only the registered participant is in front of the camera
  • Make sure that only one person is in front of the camera
  • Make sure that the camera is not covered or turned off
  • Make sure that you stay in front of the camera while you're working on the weekly assignment or final exam.
  • Make sure that there is no light source behind you. Your face will appear too dark to be recognized by the camera otherwise.
  • Remove any accessories that cover parts of your face (such as a hat or sunglasses). Reading glasses are allowed.
  • Do not present any photos or pictures to the camera.
  • Close all other tabs except for the weekly assignment or final exam.
  • Close all other applications that might interfere with your webcam.

After you've submitted your solution to a proctored exam, we will display any violation of therules as detected by our partner. In case you are no longer eligible for the Qualified Certificate due to a violation of these rules, you might still be eligible for a Record of Achievement (without your photo) if you have collected enough points in the weekly assignments and final exam.
