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.
The certifications provided by HubSpot Academy are hosted in the Learning Center, which exists inside the HubSpot software. Here's how to find the it:
Each student will need to access the Learning Center. You may assign coursework, including certifications, and see each student’s progress. Simply tell them to log into their Hubspot account, find the certification in their learning center, and begin it.
