Badges and Certificates

McGraw Hill credentials: students can achieve certificates in mastery of Microsoft Office, which can be posted to social media and resume sites.




Credentials provide a digital certificate of achievement that students see in SIMnet, but also can post to social media sites or add to resumes to display mastery of Microsoft Office applications to future employers for greater hireability.

We partner with Accredible.com to host and maintain SIMnet credentials. Upon completion of a credential, students have the option to navigate directly to Accredible to print the certificate via Single-Sign-On. This is a McGraw Hill certificate (not Microsoft certificate).
