The exam can be done at the training center, or 100% remote (online). Should you pass your exam, you will be awarded the Internationally Accredited Certified Exam Certificate which you will receive from the certifying body: Certiport.

Why Get Certified
In a world where competition for jobs, pay increases, and academic success continues to increase, certifications offer hope because they are a credible, third-party assessment of one’s skill and knowledge for a given subject. The Independent Contractor credential validates one’s skills to efficiently and effectively carry out work and provide the service or product agreed upon by both the independent contractor and the organization who hired them to do the work.
You will receive the Internationally Accredited Exam Certificate which gets sent to you directly from the certifying body: Certiport. StellieTech will email you your E-Certificate and Score Report in the meantime. You will receive an "Acclaim" badge which can be added to your LinkedIn profile to prove that you are certified.
