It is possible that your Internet browser (Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc.) is blocking the CECO Web site and you may need to disable pop-up protection on the web page. Depending on the type of browser, there is usually a selection in the browser's address bar that allows you to disable pop-up protection from the dropdown menu. You may know this as a “pop-up blocker.”


If the module was completed with a passing grade of 80% or higher, it will generate a certificate. To find the certificate, select Certificate located below Begin Module. Then select Get your certificate. The certificate will open in a pop-up window for download or printing. You may also access certificates by going to My CECO Dashboard and selecting Downloadable certificates or Certificates on the right-hand side of the computer screen.
