Financial Edge NXT Fundamentals Certification For 2018

Blackbaud University offers certified learning opportunities that recognize student achievement and help validate product knowledge. We provide these development opportunities to reflect our students’ commitment to excellence. 

Great New Year’s news—Blackbaud University 2018 Certification is available now!

Fundamentals Certification 
Ready to prove your Financial Edge NXT product knowledge? Start the process to become Blackbaud Fundamentals certified in Financial Edge NXT. The recommended path to achieve product-specific certification is to first attend the Fundamentals series of courses, and then take the Financial Edge NXT Fundamentals Exam.
If you have previously taken the Fundamentals 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 Fundamentals certified. Passing this exam enables access to all courses for which the Fundamentals series is a prerequisite. Fundamentals certification is a great milestone for every Financial Edge NXT user.

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!

Every certification identifies the year it was achieved. The year gives context for when the title was earned. We encourage students to periodically renew certification in order to reflect updates in the product platforms. You can use your certification as exemption from Financial Edge instructor-led prerequisite courses for a full three years after certification date.

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.
