Assessment: Verify your and your candidates skills - Online Certification at low cost
= breakthrough tool

Whether you are looking for a method of assessing the skills and knowledge of potential employees, or whether you yourself would like certifications in areas you are skilled, then perhaps you should check out Brainbench - the measure of achievement.

Brainbench is a great online certification service, providing certifications for free or for US$19.95 (depending on the certificate) for a large range of assessable skills.

Assessment categories range from "Information Technology" to "Languages and Communication" to "Office Skills," and some are even available for a range of skill levels.

Results of the tests and a full transcript of all other certifications are posted on a private URL you can access privately or send to others. Such URL can only be viewed using an access code, but you can also create links from your personal web page or in an e-mail message to enable potential employers and others access to your personal details and transcript of results.

In fact, you can even create your own online Curriculum Vitae at Brainbench with your contact information, a photo, audio introduction, career information and third party certifications.

Furthermore, upon successful completion of the tests, Brainbench mails you a professional hard copy certificate for you to frame or include in your Curriculum Vitae.



The assessments are recognised by an increasing number of organizations and are developed using a process that is ISO 9001 Certified. They are endorsed by the International Webmasters Association (

The service is very practical and convenient. I am able to testify to this personally...after all I used the tests to help get my current job. My employer requested I take 3 of the tests, and then made a judgement aided by the results.

More than anything else, this is the only authoritative service which offers so many certifications, also outside specific IT skills, in such a reliable and organized way and at such next-to-nothing cost. Recommended.
