Hardcopy treehouse certificates for completed tracks


Do you give out printable certificates when I complete a track here (e.g. Web Design) at Treehouse? Even though they aren't really that useful in looking for work but it's something to look at when I ask myself what have I done in my life.

thanks..and I apologize if that line sounded negative.

We don't do printed certificates at present, but it's definitely something we've thought about. We'll keep your feedback in mind as we continue the discussion. Thanks for the great suggestion!

Hey Gabino,

Maybe you can try what I do.

After I finish a track I try to apply whatever I learned during that track into a simple project. Not only does this solidify what you have learned but you get a nice project you get to show people to prove that you have knowledge in a specific area.

Thanks, Calvin

Hard copy certificates would be awesome (in addition to making a great portfolio of awesome working projects of course)

I would actually like real pins for the Achievements we get. Something about tangible things that makes everything seem cool.

How about a real sticker (with the image of the badge) for each track completed?
