CSM Certificate holders are High Performers and Lifelong Learners. They are capable, confident, and adaptable, with the skills, attitudes, and self-confidence to thrive in education, work and life. These competencies are critical for everyone: from high school and college students, to nurses, to corporate managers.
The math certified by the CSM Certificate is the equivalent of a 3 semester hour college-level course in quantitative reasoning.

The CSM Certificate is aligned with the widely adopted Common Employability Skills framework, which details the skills that are needed to succeed in all jobs across industries and levels. While most workforce certificates relate to job-specific skills (e.g., an IT or welding certificate), the CSM Certificate indicates that a person has key general skills needed in every job.
"The CSM Course and CSM Certificate addresses a core set of the Common Employability Skills that is directly linked to high performance on the job. It focuses on individuals being their personal best: caring about what they do, pushing through failure, having high expectations for themselves and following through."
