Hi @Pooia,

Congratulations on completing the course!

I just took a look at your Course Certificate. The date is May 22, 2019 which is correct if you received it today. This date format is common in the United States. It usually begins with the month (May), not with the day (22) while in a different country you may see this format: 22/05/2019

I hope this answers your question.

Thanks for your response, @Maryam. Yes, @Pooia, what you're seeing is not a bug, but the way that dates are written in the United States.

It would be really wonderful if the entire world used the same date format. Until then, we have resources like this to help us figure out how dates are written in other countries: Date format by country.
