How do I assign a certification to my students?

Here are the step-by-step instructions on assigning a HubSpot Academy certification to your students.

Please keep in mind that you will need both to

  1. have a Hubspot account through the Education Partner Program, and
  2. add students as users before assigning certifications (you can find out more about that here), and
  3. make sure your students have the permissions they need to produce work in the software. More on that here

"Assigning" a certification is as simple as asking your students to find it. They can do this in two ways:

  1. Ask them to visit HubSpot Academy. From there, they can search for the certification you'd like them to take. 
  2. Ask them to go into the HubSpot Academy Application, which they can access in the top right-hand corner of their portal, once they log in. Below is a gif on how to find this. As an example, I've searched for the "Inbound" Certification and the "Content Marketing" Certification below. 

You can also send your students a PPT or PDF on how to accept your invitation into your portal. We encourage you to share this will your students (you can that PPT here). Slides 5 and 6 are especially important in communicating how to complete certifications and the information students should know prior to completing it.
