I have created a custom status which is titled "Completed". The application I am building allows for users to view courses they have attended or our attending in the future. All upcoming courses have a status of open and all courses that have been attended have a status of Completed.

I can only view posts that have a status of open, I am getting a white screen each time I try and view a post with the Completed status. If I change the status to open the post displays. Can anyone tell me if this is normal and is there a resolve for this?

that is perfectly normal and expected behaviour.

To view content with status completed you need to add that to the "status" parameter in the channel entries tag, like so:

{exp:channel:entries status='open|Completed'}
