Certifications

Skill building and career readiness online certifications

for high school students! Perfect for SHSM, Coop, Careers, Business and more!

Unearth Education Éveillée (UEÉ) understands that each school and school board have unique needs, varying teaching models and schedules in light of COVID-19.

This is why we’ve created various learning and delivery models that provide flexibility and adaptability to allow our online certification to fit into your schedule.

 

Unearth Education Online Certifications are created by a content development team of educators that include Ontario certified teachers in collaboration with sector-specific industry professionals. Each certification consists of learning modules that include dynamic videos created by the development team, with short content pieces for students to complete to build learning and submit assignments. Our content developers use their real-world experience to create certifications that provide students with opportunities to build the skills they will need for their future of work.
