Purpose of certification

Certification in an EduMine online course confirms that you have achieved the learning objectives of that course.

Certification not only allows you to measure what you have learnt, it can also help you meet your continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. Certificates provide continuing education units (CEU’s), which provide formal recognition of your professional development*. Confirm with your professional association that EduMine certification is recognized for continuing professional development purposes.

How does certification work?

The certification process is simple and straightforward.

  1. Enroll in EduMine (if not already enrolled).
  2. Select a relevant course in which you’d like to certify, register and pay for certification in the specific course.
  3. Once you are registered for certification, you can enter the course via the “Enter Course’, “register for Certification” buttons, or the course structure.
  4. Complete the multiple-choice questions in the reviews.
  5. Complete and submit all of the interactive reviews within the selected course by the specified completion date.
  6. Your recorded performance will be reviewed by the EduMine review and approval team and the course certificate will be emailed to you.

Requirements to get a certificate

For EduMine certification, all of the requirements can be completed online. The interactive, multiple-choice reviews within a selected online course each display a random selection of questions – there can be more than one correct answer per question! The reviews must be completed with an average score of at least 75% for all reviews, and a minimum score for each review of at least 60% in order to pass the course. Once you have successfully passed and submitted each review in a selected course you will receive a certificate. Certificates are sent as PDFs.

What certificates are awarded?

For successful completion of most online courses, you will earn a standard EduMine certificate that indicates the number of continuing education units (CEUs) awarded for the course. The certificate will be issued to you as a PDF.

For successful completion of these courses, you may choose to receive a CIM certificate awarded by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM). The CIM certificate confirms successful completion of a CIM professional development course presented by EduMine.

The Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver BC is a mining school and founder of the CMS network. UBC collaborates with EduMine on provision of qualifying short courses and webcasts. CMS certificates are awarded by the UBC Department of Continuing Education.
