Ready to prove your K–12 “ON” Products knowledge? Start the process to become Blackbaud certified in Core. The recommended path to achieve product-specific certification is to first attend the Core series of courses, and then take the K–12 “ON” Products Core Exam.

If you have previously taken the Core courses, or feel you have the necessary product skills and knowledge, you may proceed to the exam. Students who pass with an 80% score or better are Core certified. Core certification is a great milestone for every K–12 “ON” Products user.

Certification Designation
  • Core: K–12 “ON” Products bCON
Core Exam Recommended Courses Bonus: All recommended courses and the K–12 “ON” Products Core certification (bCON) exam are included in Blackbaud University’s Learn More® and Learn Everything® training subscriptions! The K–12 “ON” Products bCON exam is also included in the regional course, K–12 Core: User Management and Communication.

Credentials 
When you achieve accreditation, you join a savvy community of professionals who are Blackbaud experts, and you attain credentials recognized as the industry standard. Blackbaud Certification validates your credentials, enhances your resume, and helps advance your career.

Bonus: When you pass your certification exam, you’ll receive a certificate and will be able to start promoting your Certified designation. You will also receive an email from Blackbaud with a link to download the certification seal to share on social media pages, and a small digital icon to use on your business cards, resume, and email signature. You can even promote your certification status with a badge on your Blackbaud Community profile!

No Expiration
Every certification identifies the year it was achieved. There is no expiration on a certification, but the year gives context to when the title was achieved. We encourage students to periodically renew certification in order to reflect updates in the product platforms.

No Course Requirement
We want you to pass your certification examination; we therefore recommend specific courses be taken before attempting certification. However, if you feel you possess skills and knowledge strong enough to pass an exam, we encourage you to take the exam without taking the recommended courses. To learn what topics are covered in a recommended course (and in the associated certification exam), please review the course abstract.
