Why should you certify?

Certification optimizes your learning experience, by extensively testing you through multiple choice reviews. Incorrect answers will create a “learn more” link that allows you to return to the correct answer within the course material and to improve your knowledge in weaker areas. Your answers are tracked and you can submit your review scores once you have met the requirements for passing. Successful completion of the reviews confirms that you have achieved the course’s learning objectives.

Certification not only facilitates your learning and 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 (CEUs), which provide formal recognition of your professional development*. Confirm with your professional association that EduMine certification is recognized for continuing professional development purposes.

For EduMine certification, all of the requirements can be fulfilled online. Each course is divided into Parts, and each Part has a review to test the Part’s principles and learning objectives. In order to pass the course, all reviews must be completed with a minimum score of at least 60% and an average score of at least 75% across all reviews. Once you have successfully passed and submitted each review you will receive a certificate. Certificates are sent as PDFs.

What certificates are awarded?

EduMine certificate

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 (see sample).

Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) certificate

In addition to meeting the EduMine Certification Criteria, some of our courses have been peer reviewed by the CIM and approved for the CIM Professional Development Program (see CIM Professional Development on EduMine). You may choose to receive a CIM certificate (see sample) awarded by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) for courses that you complete. The CIM certificate confirms successful completion of a CIM professional development course presented by EduMine.

Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM) accredited EduMine certificate

The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM) CPD Accreditation Committee has approved more than 15 online EduMine courses for CPD credits. The courses are registered with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA). These EduMine certificates indicate the number of SAIMM CPD credits awarded for the course (see sample).

Work towards a Certificate in Mining Studies

Certification in an online course must be completed for that course to count towards your online course requirements for the CMS.
