About BrainBench

BrainBench, an online certification and learning center (used by NASA and many Fortune 100 companies), is an increasingly respected credential. Their progressive approach to certification is taking a firm hold on the business community. They offer a way for companies to screen and test the abilities of potential and current employees with a wide range of skills assessments testing.

Overall, with its credibility, affordable prices, and great exams, BrainBench isworth considering as a standalone certification as well as a training resource. AGlobal leader in online skills measurement with more than 3.9 million registered users and over 600 different skill assessments, BrainBench pioneered online skills testing to measure the skills of employees that are crucial to a company's bottom-line success. Job-role certifications require that candidates pass multiple tests, some of which address general skill sets and others of which address specific software applications and technologies. The job-role certifications are made up of both required tests and electives, thus allowing candidates to focus on those skill sets and software applications and technologies they are most likely to use on the job, reducing training costs.

All of their skills assessments are web-based, eliminating configurationmanagement and geographical issues from the start, thus decreasing costs and doing business effectively and efficiently. ETS (the Educational Testing Service) which does the SAT and other standardized tests is a good model here. They have a growing number of large companies and government agencies using their tests. BrainBench exams serves as an indicator that individuals could successfully pass other industry certifications.

Only about 40% of all examinees pass the exams and only about 5% of allexaminees earn a Master Certification.

Within that range, BrainBench recognizes two levels of achievement for standard assessments. A score between 2.75 3.99 earns the test taker the standard certification while a score of 4.0 or higher certifies a master level of achievement.
