Do all educational content offer a certificate?
No. On ADEL, we issue certificates in two cases:
1- Certificate for a stand along course: You must complete all lessons within the course as well as pass the final quiz/assessment for at least 80% to get your certificate.
2- Certificate for an education program: All elements of an Education Program must be completed before you can receive your certificate.
Important: If the eLearning course is part of an Education Program, you will not receive a separate certificate after completing the course, you will get one certificate after completing all the components of the program.

Where can I find my certificate?
There are more than one way to find your certificate. Check them out in this article.
How can I download my certificate?
You can download your certificate to your local device by just clicking on its icon. It will also remain in your ADEL account too to download again.
In what language is certificate issued?
Currently we issue certificate in English, French and Spanish only when users complete the course in each of the respective language. For users who complete a course/education program in a different language from the above 3, the certificate will be issued in English.
How long is my certificate valid for?
The WADA Education team recommends Code Signatories to adopt a validity of 2 years for certificate(s) received on ADEL for their athletes and ASPs.
We understand the complexities and situations each ADO face in terms of education, thus each ADO may determine their own period of validity. If an ADO adopts a different certificate validity period different from the recommended 2 years, please make sure to communicate to the athletes and ASPs within your jurisdiction clearly.
For ADOs who adopt a practice of two years validity; the two years starts from when you first receive your certificate. For example, if you complete your Education Program on 10th January 2021, your certificate will remain valid until 9th January 2023.
Why do we recommend ADEL certificates valid for two years?
Things in anti-doping can change. You will have seen that in 2021 a revised Code came into effect.
In order to help you remain up to date with your anti-doping knowledge, we have set a validity period of two years on ADEL for any Education Programs you complete. Towards the end of the two year period, you will be asked to refresh your education in order to receive a new certificate, again valid for two years.
Please take note that if your ADO (NADO/IF) uses a different validity period than two years, please make sure to verify with them.
