    GRADUATION CERTIFICATE

    The easiest way to generate a bunch of certificates is to use Word mail merge tool to generate a .pdf file containing all the certificates. Then print the .pdf file onto decorated pages, place in green heavy stock folders, and attach Walnut Creek gold seal on folder cover. The decorated pages, green folders, and gold seal are stored in the CERT office at City Hall.

    Compressed folder containing Word template & instructions.

     

    GRADUATION WELCOME LETTER

    Print this file to .pdf and email to new CERT graduates along with the .pdf CERT Leadership page. No need to update the letter every year unless something in it needs to be changed.
