Have you ever seen an instructor not give a certifiate for not attending classes?
A lot of training courses give students a certificate of completion when a training course is completed. It's really not worth anything, except to show you attended classes. It doesn't mean you listened in class, learning anything at all or passed any sort of test or exam. Sometimes employees use an employers training dollars for an excuse to take a vacation on the companies dime. They don't pay attention in class, take longer lunches, leave early and sometimes don't even bother showing up to classes at all, and go sight seeing instead. Have you ever attended a training course where an instructor refused to give a student that didn't show up to classes a certificate? Has an employer ever asked you for a copy of the certificate of completion when you returned to work the next day or week? Or you aware of any employer ask the company that provided training any feed back on how "Johnny" did in training?
