Certify your skills with the MEC program

Have you taught with Moodle LMS or Moodle Workplace™ for at least a year? Have you already completed a Moodle course on Moodle Academy or training with a Certified Service Provider? If so, then consider certifying your skills with the Moodle Educator Certification (MEC) program.

What is the Moodle Educator Certification?


The MEC is a certification program for educators, or learning and development professionals, who have experience in teaching or training with Moodle LMS or Moodle Workplace. The MEC emphasises the importance of developing pedagogic and professional competencies to enhance and innovate online education and training. Although it is not a training program, as participants progress through the certification process they will reflect on their practice and this will strengthen their understanding and confidence when teaching with Moodle. 

MEC is based on the widely used and accepted European Framework for the Digital Competence for Educators (DigCompEdu). It is a six-course certification program that allows experienced Moodle educators or learning and development professionals to demonstrate their expertise in teaching or creating learning development programs with Moodle LMS or Moodle Workplace and obtain official certification directly from Moodle.

Are you ready for the MEC?


If you feel you meet the requirements for the MEC, take this short quiz Are you ready for the MEC?. Based on your score in the pre-placement quiz, we’ll give you more information on getting certified.

Alternatively, Moodle training is available if you need it through Moodle Academy or our Certified Service Providers.
