The ALISON Certification Standard

As the leading online provider of free, workplace focused certification, we take great efforts to ensure the certification we award is of as high a standard as possible. Some of the measures we take to ensure this are as follows:

  • ALISON Certificates and Diplomas are only awarded upon course completion with a score of 80% or more — a higher standard than traditional Educational Institutions

  • We provide means for employers to test ALISON graduates on their knowledge through our ‘Verification’ system. This ensures all of our graduates can be called upon to demonstrate their knowledge anytime, anywhere.

  • Our Certs themselves utilise advanced security features to prevent forgery

How it works


Decide what you want to study!

If you're not sure what you want to study, it might be a good idea to take our free aptitude test to see where you're interests lie.


Find the right course

We offer courses at both certificate and diploma level, and with over 600 courses on ALISON, we're sure you'll find what you need at a level that's right for you.


Get Enrolled

Once you've found a course you want to study, all you have to do is sign in or register your free account on ALISON, and then click on the 'start course' button. Our courses are free and self-paced, so you can get started straight away.



With ALISON you can study whenever you want, wherever you want. There is no time limit for courses, so you can move at your own pace.


Take the Assessments

You can take or re-take an assessment on ALISON anytime you want, but we require scores of 80% or over to pass. Once you've passed all the assessments on your course, you are officially a certified ALISON graduate!


Get your Cert

Once you've completed your course, you can download your learner record as proof of your accomplishment. Should you like something more official, you can order a certificate and we'll send it out by registered post.
