The REC Foundation Certifications Program is a response to a global need for more students in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Along with a team of professional engineers, college professors, and high school teachers, the REC Foundation created two industry certifications for students in engineering or robotics-related programs.
ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
The REC Foundation does not require a curriculum to successfully complete the exams, however the following resources are available for teachers to consider. Curriculum Suggestions
Modules Certifications are based on a Fundamentals of Engineering Core exam and eight Engineering Area Module exams. All exams are pass/fail at 70%.
