  • Where is your layout.xml located? Did you change the admin theme? Make sure your layout.xml/layout handle is processed after the one you want to change. Jan 14, 2016 at 15:49

I have tried your approach and everything is working fine. Make sure that:

  1. Your module's layout file is in adminhtml/default/default/layout/educertification.xml

  2. Your template file is located in adminhtml/default/default/template/educertification/sales/items/column/name.phtml

  3. After that you could try to clear the cache.
