Ready to prove your Blackbaud Grantmaking product knowledge? Start the process to become Blackbaud Fundamentals certified in Blackbaud Grantmaking. The recommended path to achieve product-specific certification is to first attend the Fundamentals series of courses, and then take the Blackbaud Grantmaking 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 new Blackbaud Grantmaking user.

Credentials 
When you achieve certification, you join a savvy community of professionals who are Blackbaud product experts, and you attain credentials recognized as the industry standard. Blackbaud Certification validates your credentials, enhances your resume, and helps advance your career.
 
Certification Designation
Fundamentals: bCGM
When you pass your certification exam, you can use the certification designation above to share your certification in your email signature, resume, and social media profiles. You’ll also receive a certificate to print or save electronically, as well as a link from Blackbaud to download the certification seal and a small digital icon to share on social media pages, 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. You can use your certification as exemption from Blackbaud Grantmaking instructor-led prerequisite courses for a full three years after certification date.
 
No Course Requirement
We want you to pass your certification exam; 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 by clicking one of the Fundamentals course links above.
