When the person passes the quiz at the end of the course how do I generate a course completion certificate?
Look at the learning interaction 'Certificate'.
One more question, how can I import my specific template for certificates?
What do you mean exactly? You don't like the different designs of the certificate? You dan design a certificate,with standard objects, and use the user variable 'cpQuizInfoStudentName to insert on that certificate, as well as the course name (which you can enter under File, Project Info) and the date (use one of the date system variables).
I have a powerpoint file that has a certificate we present with our face to face class that I am making into an on-line course and wanted to use the same file.
Do not use that PPT slide if you want the name of the learner, the date, the name of the course to be automatically inerted. Use the learning interactin, choose a style. You can also do this using variable and advanced actions with standard objects, but I fear that is beyond your skills.
I have inserted a certificate from the learning interaction library but it does not allow me to populate with user data. Also when I click the continue button at the end of the quiz it does not bring up the certificate. What am I doing wrong? Sorry to keep asking questions.
Check if the system variable cpQuizInfoStudentName is populated by the LMS. It is that name which will appear on the certificate. The proect name is taken from another system variable. Fil the data under a under File, Project Info.
For the Continue button, sorry to repeat, but you should read the articles I wrote about Quizzing. IWhen that button is clicked the playhead is released and actions which define in Quiz Preferences, Pass/Fail are done, at the end of the score slide. Which actions did you set up? Do you want the certificate to appear anyway or only when the quiz has been passed? This has to be done with those actions.
That makes sense thank you. Can you send me the link to your articles?
Oops.... have so many. Here some links:

An ebook would be awesome! Thank you for the links
