Brainbench's test database covers more than 600 topics, but the number of unique tests it houses is arguably infinite. To enhance security, a test's questions change each time it's taken. This makes certification in its various subject areas—such as healthcare, computer programming, and foreign language—more difficult to attain.
This rigor has drawn more than 13,000 employers to Brainbench testing because it proves to them that a job applicant actually does have the skills listed on his or her resume. For example, it proves that the candidate is actually fluent in Spanish and not just someone who walks around in a matador's cape. Once certified in a topic, such as business writing, C++ programming, or Adobe Photoshop, a member can share their online transcript with a prospective employer with the click of a mouse.
