2 hrs
night school/classes


Explanation:
If the certificate says that the person attended class/took out a degree by night, then depending on how you are presenting the info:

by night
at night school
attending/at night/evening classes

we tend to say 'night school' and 'evening classes'- the former refers to serious study, the latter to classes for a hobby, etc.
