Paid Masterclasses provide accredited certificates. To get the certificates, the participant should go through the following route:

Step 1: The exam

The participant should sit for an online exam. The exam is monitored, so any attempt to record, search the web for answers, cheat, or stop the exam before you finish will not allow the participant any further effort to sit the exam.

Step 2: Survey

The participant should participate in a survey immediately when the participant submits the exam.

Step 3: The result

The result of the exam will appear on the participant’s page.

Step 4: Passing the exam

If the participant passes the exam, a certificate of “attendance and passing the exam” will be automatically issued to their page, and they will receive an accredited certificate within six weeks.

If they fail to pass the exam, only an " attendance " certificate will be issued to their page.

7. Requesting certificates and invoices:

The attendees can claim invoices and certificates up to ONE month from the end of any scientific activity; after that, it would not be possible for the support team to issue any invoice or certificate.
