REC Foundation Industry Certifications
The REC Foundation is pleased to provide two industry certifications
for schools, students in engineering-related programs, and robotics
clubs. Students are expected to have at least 150 hours of
pre-engineering or robotics classroom experience. Each certification
is broken into several modules and certain modules are required, but
students are not limited to how many they take. Students earn both
certifications when completing the Robotics requirements, as those
exceed Pre-Engineering. To learn more, please visit: Industry
Certifications - http://www.roboticseducation.org/for-participants/certification/
