Please note the following correction to information shared in the video below: The CertCapture Certificate Library can now be found under the Company Content menu heading within CertCapture (as opposed to the Reports menu heading detailed in this video).  

  1. On the CertCapture toolbar, click Company Content, and then click Certificate Library.
  2. At the upper right in the Certificate Library, click All Exposure Zones, and then select your exposure zone for the certificate.

  3. In the Certificate Library, next to the state or province for which you need a certificate, click a form type:
    • Blank Forms are Adobe portable document format (PDF) forms into which you can fill in your company and customer details.
    • Prefilled Forms are PDFs that already include your company name, address, and products or services.
  4. Send the form to your customer to fill out and send it back to you. For more details, see request certificates.
