Moving beyond the foundational concepts covered in our Injection Molding Professional exam, this certification level requires an advanced understanding of Scientific Molding. Participants must also demonstrate hands-on skills in order to attain certification. The standards in this examination are determined by current industry best practices.

Passing the online exam requires a good understanding of scientific processing and documentation, as well as die setting, material handling, purging, troubleshooting, and tooling.

The skills-testing portion of the examination demands a functional demonstration of practical scientific injection molding, including: scientific process development, process documentation, and other critical skills.

Who Should Consider Advanced Certification?

Our Advanced Certification is geared toward engineers and technicians. In short, anyone involved with developing and optimizing Scientific Molding processes can benefit from this enhanced certification. Individuals who get certified can further their careers and improve their standing with their company and the industry at large. Companies should strongly consider this certification exam to benchmark their employees — and to verify they have a confident, capable production team.

How the Online Exam is Structured:

True/False questions are used to cover a wide range of topics while multiple choice questions provide stronger indication of the candidate’s understanding of important injection molding concepts. Finally, scenario-solving questions are used to gauge the participant’s practical knowledge of advanced processing.

How to Get Certified:

In order to ensure candidates have both working knowledge and demonstratable skills, the evaluation for our Advanced Scientific Processing Certification is conducted in two separate stages: an online test and hands-on skills testing.

The first stage involves completing a comprehensive online test, which requires approximately 1.5 hours — with a total time limit of 3 hours. Upon completion of the exam, participants are immediately notified whether they’ve passed or not, via email. Those who do not pass receive a detailed report indicating areas in which further improvement is needed, prior to retaking the exam.

The skills-testing stage requires the completion of 13 different hands-on worksheets — performed at an injection molding machine. The completed materials are then uploaded to Routsis Training for individual review before certification is conferred upon the candidate.
