Certification Testing
Our partnership with COMMON affords students the ability to do free certification testing on behalf of COMMON. Each year, COMMON donates 100 free certifications to the COMMON Education Foundation for students. Attaining certification signals expertise as well as validates skills against current practices. Certification can be a boost to one’s career, as many companies value certified professionals.
