certcentral overview

What is certcentral?

certcentral is a cloud-based learning management system (LMS) that helps businesses create and manage continuing education, employee onboarding, continuing medical, and certificate training programs. Using a drag-and-drop interface and content editor, training providers can build custom courses and add tests, multimedia, attachments, or links across programs to improve engagement and learning outcomes.

certcentral lets businesses use mandatory video settings such as forced video watch, prevent skipping, and private hosting of confidential sources to ensure students watch learning materials. It offers a student management module, which enables training providers to form training groups, assign courses to individuals, receive open enrollment or invite specific students of universities or organization, customize programs based on departments or groups, create organizational groups by bulk uploading contact lists, and view progress on a unified dashboard. Certification tool lets course creators configure brand-specific certificates and add student data such as license number and state of licensure for automatically generating and emailing certificates to students on completion of courses.

certcentral allows course creators to gauge the learning outcome by adding various types of tests based on forced sequencing, multiple choice question, randomization, weighted scoring, explanations, and time allocation. Businesses can ensure compliance and security across programs by sending private invitations to individuals, preventing spam via reCAPTCHA, blocking unauthorized downloads of corporate training videos, and automatically logging out on inactivity.

Customer service responds very quickly and has been great.

Pros
How easy the software is to setup. You can gather allt on your own but looking over notes and how to’s are helpful, so things were not as easy to caught on to.

Cons
The it does not offer a community space for users to connect with each other, like a messager.

The customer service has been wonderful. They helped us learn how to customize the platform to our liking. We also like the online chat help.

Pros
Training and certifying large groups of employees who work in remote locations has always been a cumbersome process with a lot of moving parts. CertCentral has helped us manage all the pieces in an efficient and easy-to-use platform that works as well for general employee on-boarding training, as it does for clinical training of our physicians. The software has increased our compliance rates by requiring that viewers watch videos before completing the certification process. The time savings of no longer having to send files back and forth on email has been a godsend. Overall, CertCentral has greatly improved our productivity and has increased the efficacy of our training & certification programs.

Cons
No complaints; our experience has been very positive

Customer response has been GREAT; very quick to reply and help troubleshoot. I like the platform overall but there were some small challenges. And some users were having trouble accessing their post module assessment.

Pros
-Easy to upload videos -Easy to create exams

Cons
-Can't have a graded exam after each module (I ended up consolidating all modules) -Can't set up an auto email to go out after each student completes the learning module -Took a long time to upload the mp4 video

The customer service at CertCentral is terrific. That has made our first steps into the online CEU world possible. Our courses are developed from live presentations around issues of interest to social workers, nurses, alcohol and drug use counselors, and other health providers. The presentations often have waiting lists so we initially created the online CEU's to address that need.

Pros
The software is really intuitive. We like that it accommodates our video courses and that the layout is really clean. Testers and users have all commented on how easily they can navigate on the site. We tested out another company's very complicated software first and were hugely relieved to find CertCentral.

Cons
There isn't much we don't like. Very minor things like the font default is gray not black, and sometimes it takes guesswork to determine the correct font size.

Great Coach Education Platform

Used occasionally for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Overall I loved the platform. We put over 300 volunteer youth coaches through an educational video series and tracked who completed the course.

Pros
I picked CertCentral due to the ease of setting up our program, the tracking capabilities and the cost for our size group (300-400 users)

Cons
I wish it was a little easier to be able to check who had completed the course, mark them or group them so each time going to check fora group of people, not having to look through all past course completions.
