Hello Alifaraax,

I'm afraid there are not certificates of completion for our webpages or courses right now. We'll certainly let your users know if this changes in the future.

All the best,

During weekdays, in my break time, I go to our nearest cafeteria to take away a drink. Usually, I buy orange or lemon juice, because they include many vitamins and are fresh to drink, so I gain energy for the rest of the day. And for snacks, I prefer to get them from my home instead of buying them in the cafeteria.
