If they're paying you for this, it's worth $20 out of pocket to just
get it done and out of your hair.

If they're not paying you, tell them you need to borrow a credit
card and they can watch.

less than $20/year, takes literally 15 minutes from start to having
a certificate.  Well, maybe 30 minutes the first time when you need
to read everything.

There are probably dozens of other sites offering similar services;
I've used this one several times.
