Interested in obtaining Creative Commons Certificate 2019? SCHOLARSHIP offerings will be officially announced when they are available!

The Creative Commons (CC) Certificate is an in-depth course about CC licenses, open practices and the ethos of the Commons. CC plans on adding new fields of practice, launching a certificate instructor training program, and funding a CC Certificate scholarship program.  

The CC Certificate powers you with knowledge to better advise your institution on creating and engaging with openly licensed works. You will learn how to:

  • adapt and innovate on existing openly licensed materials–keeping your institution’s knowledge base relevant and up to date;
  • best support learners accessing a wider array of open knowledge resources;
  • meet open licensing requirements increasingly present in government and foundation grants and contracts.

The CC Certificate Facilitator Training will develop a growing network of qualified professionals who can expertly instruct future classes, and help us meet the need for more Certificate classes. 

The course is composed of readings, quizzes, discussions, and practical exercises to develop learners’ open skills. This course is open to everyone, from university students and entry-level professionals to experts in the fields of library science and education (more fields forthcoming).

Online course registration for 2019 is available: hereNote: If the class you would like to join is sold out, please email [email protected] to be put on a waitlist for the class. Find out more information about the Certificate, and upcoming opportunities to become a Certificate Facilitator here.


Since CC is determined to make the CC Certificate available and accessible to community members of all income levels, around the world, it  will be putting CC funding into a scholarship program starting in 2019. To help fund scholarships, CC will devote a portion of the standard CC Certificate ticket price to the scholarship fund. Scholarship offerings will be officially announced when they are available. Please stay in touch for more details.
