Most (but not all) courses at Stepik issue certificates. If a specific course does, you will be able to find the information on it on the main page of the course (in Certificate category). There you can also find the necessary number of points.
There are two types of certificate issue
- If the course has deadlines (after a soft deadline you get less points (number of points is set by the instructor), after a hard deadline no points can be gained), certificates are issued to all the learners after the last deadline simultaneously;
- If there are no deadlines in the course, certificates are issued within 24 hours after you gained enough points, then they will keep up to date while you solve other assignments.
