Udemy + LinkedIn ‘Add to Profile for Certifications’


Yesterday LinkedIn announced a new feature, Add to Profile for Certifications to allow members to showcase their expertise by easily adding their professional certifications to their profile. According to LinkedIn, members with certifications receive 6 times more profile views.

In support of this program, Udemy is a proud pilot partner and certification provider. How does it work for Udemy students? Students receive emails at quarterly intervals of their course completion (25, 50, 75, 100% complete). The email contains an automatically populated certification field with the details of the course you just completed. When you click “Save,” it will seamlessly add the certification or completed course work to your LinkedIn Profile. Easy as that.


In today’s highly competitive workforce, it’s more important than ever to not only acquire relevant skills, but also showcase them wherever possible. We’re excited that Udemy students can now leverage the LinkedIn Add to Profile button to get discovered and recognized for their hard earned skills and expertise!
