Certification testing after implementing is critical to ensuring integrations will work with other tools or platforms. While conformance certification provides a "seal" for passing prescribed tests it is much more than that. It is a commitment by a supplier to the 1EdTech community for ongoing support for achieving "plug and play" integration. Certification implies ongoing community commitment to resolve problems, revise implementations and retest as needed. For that reason, only 1EdTech Contributing Members, Affiliate Members and Learning Tools and Content Alliance members are eligible to apply for conformance certification.
