The CES Selector Certificate Program lets you validate and extend your knowledge of the CES Selector software. It is open to past or present users of CES Selector in industry or CES EduPack (the companion product for materials education). Learn to use the system more productively and promote your experience, e.g., to prospective employers. There are three levels of the program. To become a Certified User, see the e-learning course below. Professional and Expert levels are currently accessible via Granta training courses (more information) but e-learning options will be available in future.

    Available courses

    Certified User status is designed for any past or present user of CES Selector or CES EduPack. To become a certified user, you need to demonstrate that you understand the data available in CES Selector and know how to apply the core search, selection and comparison tools.


    To validate your experience, and receive a certificate, you simply need to pass a short test. Learning materials are provided to help you brush up your knowledge or, for new users, to get started with CES Selector.


    Although beneficial, it is not necessary to have direct access to the software.
