  5. (Optional) Enter the Instructor. If this was entered when the component was created, it will automatically be populated, but you can over-ride it as needed.

If you wish to add additional components, repeat steps 2 - 5 above.


  • For event registrants who have already enrolled in the associated certification program, the event registration will automatically update the certification progress, for that registrant.
  • For event registrants, who are NOT enrolled in the associated certification program, if the Enroll Attendees To All Relevant Certifications setting is enabled under Certifications General Settings the system will automatically enrolled the registrant in the appropriate certification program. See Configure Continuing Education General Settings for further information.
  • If Enroll Attendees to All Relevant Certifications is not enabled, you will need to enroll the registrant in the program to ensure that the registration in the course is tied to the contact, and associated certification program. See Certification Enrollment for details.
  • Only registrants that are existing contacts in the database will be automatically enrolled in the certification. Hidden contacts, or contacts matched after the fact, will not be automatically enrolled. See Manage Event Registrations for further information.
  • Users that register for an event that is tied to multiple certifications (i.e. 6 sessions each pointing to 6 different certification components), will be enrolled in all 6 of those certifications.
  • When an attendee is marked as Attended in an event, they will automatically be sent a Component Completed certification, via email. (The attendee must exist in GrowthZone as a contact in order for the automated messaging to work; see Matching Registrants to Contacts for more information.)  The document generation template can be selected on a component-by-component basis. If you do not want to send this particular document, you can choose to not send under Setup> Automated Messages.
