    REC Foundation Industry Certifications!
    The REC Foundation is pleased to provide two industry certifications
    for schools, students in engineering related programs, and robotics
    clubs. Students are expected to have at least 150 hours of
    pre-engineering or robotics classroom experience. Each certification
    is broken into several modules and certain modules are required, but
    students are not limited to how many they take. Students earn both
    certifications when completing Robotics as those requirements exceed
    Pre-Engineering. To learn more, please visit: Industry Certifications
