Successfully complete an industry certification examination representative of skills learned in this course (e.g., MCP, IC3, NOCTI).
The successful completion of an industry certification examination will be achieved when the student applicant earns an examination score deemed "passing" by the testing organization. Qualifying examinations are those currently approved at the state level as representative of Programming, Advanced skills. (These may be found in the Virginia Department of Education's Administrative Planning Guide.)
Students should be encouraged to attain industry certification as evidence of their programming skill level and general employability.
