How does the certification work?

The final project is where you will apply what you have learnt by putting together a plan for your organization! This is a brilliant opportunity to identify something that you need in your organization and walk away with an actionable plan you can start right away!

The EBA team will review your project upon submission and provide you with feedback and tips.
Also, if it meets the final project requirements you will receive your digital diploma.  If anything is missing, we will give you pointers to help you cross the finish line!

  • By invoice or credit card online. Kindly note that the invoice option is only available to those paying as an organization (not as a private individual).  

    After clicking the “Register Now” button, you will be presented with both options. From there, simply select ‘credit card payment’ or ‘invoice’. If selecting credit card payment, note that you will be redirected to our Stripe checkout form.  

  • 9 months from the date your online course invitation is sent to you.  

  • Make sure you are using the email address you used when you set up your login details to the online platform. If you don’t remember your password, you have the option to reset it. (If you have previously taken an EBAx course, you use the same login details.) 

  • Please note that the first thing you will receive is an email from the EBA team. Please follow the instructions in that email in order for us to create your eLearning account and send you your invite!  

     

    Please note that it may take up to 24 working hours before the email and invite get sent.

  • Your account is active for 9 months, after which it expires. For special cases, contact the support team at team@employerbrandingacademy.com

  • This differs from person to person. It can range anywhere from 15 to 30 hours total, depending for instance on how much time you explore the optional material, or apply steps and templates to your work (also optional). Please note that all the “Dig Deeper” resources are not required reading, nor are you required to fill out the templates provided throughout the course.

  • No - if you still have time left within your 9-month period, you will continue to have access for the remaining time. For instance, if you complete the modules and submit your project in 4 months, you will still have access for the remaining 5 months.

  • The two objective criteria are: 

    1) Complete the 4 online modules 

    2) Put together a final case project (10-12 slide PPT) that you will submit to the EBA team. The project must be applied to your organization and demonstrate an understanding of any relevant learnings from the course that you have applied.  

  • The course provides you with a list of proposed topics, guidance and key requirements. Upon submitting your project, the EBA team will review it and confirm if it meets the requirements and that you have passed. Otherwise, we will provide you with some written tips and feedback to help you get it to the right level! 

    Even if your project passes right away, you will still receive some written feedback from us. 

  • You will be sent written, tailored feedback and tips from an EBA team reviewer, and you will also be sent your Diploma! We issue the EBA diplomas through the software TRUE. See example here.

  • No. These are resources that are available for you to download and use if you would like. You may save them for future use. Or, if any are relevant to your work and role and/or for your final project, then of course you may use them! 

  • No. The “Dig Deeper” material is all optional reading. 

  • There is no set schedule. Since the course is flexible and “always on”, you can manage your own time, as long as you complete the course and certify within your 9-month access timeframe. You may book 30 minutes a day, an hour a week, a study session on the weekend – whatever works best for you!  

  • You can certify "whenever" you are ready within your 9-month timeframe.

    Step 1: Submit your final project

    Step 2: The EBA team will review it and contact you within a week!
