The MEC Direct certification process


As your organisation’s “go-to” Moodle expert, you’ll first participate in the MEC program with Moodle HQ.

Once you’re a Certified Moodle Educator, you’ll take our MEC Direct Facilitator training course to ensure you’re confident with the program administration and assessment procedures.

We’ll then set you up with your own private, secure and dedicated area in our MEC Site ( for you to facilitate MEC Direct for your colleagues.
Our team will provide technical and pedagogical support so you can focus on facilitating MEC Direct.

Once your colleagues obtain their 6 MEC badges, they can apply for an official MEC certification, issued by Moodle HQ (that’s us!)

  • Primarily an educational focus (not commercial)
