  • To enroll in the certification program click here. Students who are not enrolled will not be able to take certification quizzes in the MIL.  You only need to enroll once to be eligible to participate in all certification levels.

  • You can take certification quizzes in the MIL on any Sunday from 2/2 to 5/4 (except for 3/23 and 3/30) between 1:00PM and 7:00 PM. The last time to start a quiz is 6:00 PM.  Prior to taking a quiz you must have attended the corresponding class (e.g., if you want to sit for the Bloomberg 101 quiz you must have attended the Bloomberg 101 class during the same school year.) You must complete the series of quizzes outlined in the table below in order to receive an electronic copy of your certificate (we do not issue paper certificates).
