Upon completion of the course, including pre-test, watching all video modules, taking all challenge questions and passing the post-test with an 80% or higher (multiple attempts allowed), you will earn 2 or 4 recertification points, depending on the product, and a certificate of completion.

Certified professionals are more likely to be hired and receive more promotions and leadership assignments than those who do not hold certification.
