If your purchase declines, an invoice can be created for you. Your certificate will not be released until receipt of payment. Please contact to request an invoice.

Note #3: Mock Invoices
According to McMaster University's financial policy, we are not able to create "mock" invoices for organizations or individuals who purchase our course in the checkout page but need an "invoice copy" as well (which is typical in cases where an employer reimburses the individual). However, a letter of confirmation can be requested at to support your reimbursement and proof of documentation process.
