Certification Goals
Our goals for Rookies Certified Schools are very simple. We want to:
- showcase top quality schools and help set a high standard of educational excellence.
- assure employers that students graduating from these schools are industry ready and qualified.
- help approved schools differentiate themselves from competitors.
- help prospective students find a trusted school.
- weed out the weaker schools that are of no benefit to prospective students.

What makes a Certified School better than the rest?
It's simple. Our team of industry professionals, educators and advisory board review each and every school. Schools can't simply pay for the certification, it must be earned.

When reviewing schools, our review panel considers many factors including:
- graduate acceptance rates
- quality of facilities and resources
- up-to-date software and curriculum
- planned software development and training for staff
- feedback from alumni and their success stories
- range of courses and fee structures
- relationship with industry representatives and networking
- reputation of studios that hire graduates
- quality of student work across all years
