Our Security

On the 6th anniversary of our team’s issuance of the world’s first STEM certification, we transferred the first-ever STEM credential into the blockchain on May 31st, 2018 (DLT ID #578411/STEM ID #11594446). Basic photo editing software or copier skills allows anyone to duplicate a paper certificate. Educational Research automatically submits each credential instantly into the blockchain which creates a permanent record that is impossible to change or alter. Our system cryptographically seals a record of all achievements, resulting in the ability for third parties to verify with absolute certainty that a record has not been falsely created once issued. This industry-pioneering, methodology eliminates fraud and technologically ensures the credibility of our trustmarks.

Testimonials About Certified™

Educator, Dearborn Public School District

This STEM certification Course is the first of its kind to bring certified and non-certified teachers endless possibilities within STEM education making professionals more marketable. There are easy to follow chapters that allow educators to understand what goes into STEM curriculum. The content of this course will make anyone more prepared to understand and lead in STEM in any environment. I have saved a lot of time lesson planning and even used the modules to earn extra money, by running a drone camp.

Curriculum Developer, Creation Crate

I have been working with for over two years now and I must say, they have been great. They have provided certification opportunities for some of the teachers that we work with and have helped us in many other ways. Certified™ is an online version of their highly-successful live course—only much more affordable. If you are a teacher, mentor, librarian or parent who is interested in boosting your STEM knowledge, or know someone who is, I HIGHLY recommend taking this course.

Educator, Detroit Community Schools

I strongly recommend STEM Online Certification Course to other educators based on my personal experience. I learned a lot ,and was able to teach my students from this course. My class loved the bottle rocket lesson and loved it so much they wanted to do it everyday. So far it has been one of the best investments towards my teaching. The online courses were very easy to follow along and complete at my own pace. I also loved how accessible staff was for all of my questions.
