I doubt you can do it for certain, best I imagine you could do is with some Javascript, start an embedded youtube video playing (set it to autoplay and it will start as soon as the page has loaded), then start a timer in Javascript for the same length of time as the video takes to play.
If the time gets to the end, and the user is still on the page, then they might have watched the whole video. In which case you could make a call back to the server (Ajax or to a ashx handler) saying that is is complete. Then redirect the viewer to the certificate page.
You’ll never know for certain as they could start teh video running then walk away to make coffee or something. And I doubt Youtube expose this data themselves (ie, did the end of the video play).

This can be done using Youtube Javascript API. Learn more at YouTube guide for dot net developers. Also see YouTube JavaScript Player API Reference and especially the section on event handlers.
