VRC: Applying for your Software Foundations Micro-Certification
As a member of a VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) team, you have built up a number of valuable technical skills. Micro-Certifications, brought to you by RECF and the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy, let you showcase these skills as part of a college application or resume, or simply let others know what you have accomplished through VRC.

The Software Foundations Micro-Certification covers all of the concepts that were covered in Robotics Integrations as well as programming sensors, and a vision system (or camera).

The exam portion of this Micro-Certification will test your knowledge of these concepts to determine if you meet or exceed the foundational knowledge needed as a Robotics Technician.

To apply for yours:
  • (Optional) Review the lesson materials to brush up and see what is covered by the exam 
  • [REQUIRED] Upload photos of your work to your portfolio according to the prompts 
  • [REQUIRED] Obtain approval of your uploads by CMRA or a Certified Teacher**
  • [REQUIRED] Take the online exam (60 min, multiple choice, passing = 70%)**
  • **Requires purchasing Student Certification Access and have CMRA or a CMRA Certified instructor approve uploads
