You are eligible for a Confirmation of Participation if you have visited at least 50 per cent of the course material. The Confirmation of Participation contains the following information: Name of the participant, date of birth (optional), course title and summary.

Features A 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 online proctoring, we ensure that only the registered user is taking the assignments and the final exam.
If the participant has booked the Certificate, they will receive a Record of Achievement and a Confirmation of Participation, as long as they fulfil the requirements.
HPI recommends granting 2 ECTS for a Certificate.
If you intend to receive university credits for an openHPI course, please contact your examination office 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:
HPI provides this service in cooperation with an external European partner, to whom HPI only transmits the photos. Only HPI is able to match the photos to the participant's data. Our partner only performs automated face recognition and reports any deviations. This entire process results in costs for HPI. Therefore, we request a fee of 60 EUR per certificate. You will get an invoice upon request.
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 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.
It is still possible to register for a Certificate after completing the first weekly assignment. In general, this is at the beginning of the second week of the course. It is no more possible to register for the Certificate once you have submitted more than one weekly assignment or the deadline for the second weekly assignment has passed.
In case any one of the following rules is violated, we will be unable to award the Certificate.
See this page for an illustrated guide.
After you have submitted your solution to a proctored exam, we will display any violation of the rules as detected by our partner. In case you are no longer eligible for the 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.
There will be no refunds if you did not fulfil the eligibility criteria for a Certificate.
