Sample PDF CME Certificates

The following links are from a sample PDF CME certificate with embedded Activity Report XML. Thanks to Ed Chase at Adobe for producing these samples.

.zip fileE. ChaseZIP file that contains all of the following files2007
CME Cert EC04162007E. ChaseThis is the sample XML file - it's basically exactly what you sent me with the package, but I think I had to spell out the ACCME acronym in the XML data to get it to look right on the certificate.2007
CME Cert Template.xdpE. ChaseThis is the template file, it is an XML template for the PDF form that is really only used by LiveCycle Designer during the design process.2007
CME Cert EC04162007.pdfE. ChaseThis file is the basic, un-populated PDF - you can open it in Acrobat and use the Forms>Manage Form Data>Import Data command to import the XML instance to see how this works.2007
CME Cert EC04162007 - wData.pdfE. ChaseThis is a populated copy of the previous form, this might be helpful for people with only the free Adobe Reader as opposed to Acrobat.2007
CME Cert EC04162007 - Certified wData.pdfE. ChaseThis is what a digitally signed or certified copy might look like - I've added a digital signature that provides identity, time & date stamps, and document integrity features. Not sure if you need something this advanced at this point, but we have a number of universities that use this sort of technology for their official transcripts.2007
