Update Your LinkedIn Profile to Highlight Your Course Completion

Update Your Profile

Go to “Edit Your Profile” and then “Add profile section.”

Choose “Accomplishments” and then “Courses.”

On this screen, provide the course name and number from your Certificate of Completion, and optionally, link to a specific position.

Now your course participation will show up under the Accomplishments section of your LinkedIn profile, and anyone viewing your profile will be able to see your increased competence.

Share Your Certificate of Completion in a Post

However, LinkedIn no longer automatically updates your network about changes to your Accomplishments, so you’ll want to add a post to share your celebration.

On your home page, click “Start a Post.”

Use the graphic icon to upload the image copy of your Certificate of Completion, and share a note about your experience.

Here’s some template copy to get you started!

Congratulations!

And no matter how you choose to celebrate, we at Bridging the Gap congratulate you on your accomplishment. We’re so honored to be part of your career journey.
