How much does Kruse Training cost?
We offer three different pricing structures:

  • Individual lessons: Individual lessons are available for $40 each. You will have unlimited access to your purchased lessons for a six-month period with no license requirement. All available lessons for individual purchase can be found here. 
  • Sets of lessons: Sets of lessons in specific categories are available to purchase. Pricing is based on the number of lessons available in each set. As is the case with the individual lessons, you will have unlimited access to your purchased set(s) of lessons for a six-month period with no license requirement. All available sets for purchase can be found here.
  • Individual or corporate licensing: We offer individual and multiple user discounted licensing options. All licensed users are eligible for Kruse Training certification (information available here). We also offer discounted corporate pricing, flexible license options, and custom corporate licensing programs. Details can be found here. 

Can I buy one subscription and share it with my team?
Yes, we do have companies that purchase one “supervisor” subscription to train their teams. In this situation we only provide one log-in account, so this is not be an appropriate option if someone is seeking certification. Individual user accounts are required for certification eligibility.

Can I purchase lessons without committing to a license? 
Yes! You can purchase individual lessons for $50 with unlimited access for 6-months from the date of purchase. Individual lessons can be purchased here. But please note that you will not be eligible for certification without purchasing a license.

How many lessons are in each level?
There are 70 lessons in level 1. The number of lessons will vary throughout the development phase for each additional level.

How long are the lessons?
The run time for a lesson ranges from 15 to 20 minutes. The Molding Defects lessons introduce interactive 3D technology that allows users to manipulate the featured parts so users may spend as long as they want on each lesson.

Is there an order for watching the lessons?
Although there is no specified order for the lessons, the content was created so the lessons naturally flow from one section to the next. The lessons within each section are numbered but can be viewed consecutively or individually in any order. The order of the sections is:

  1. Molding Fundamentals
  2. Polymer Materials
  3. Part Design
  4. Mold Design
  5. Processing
  6. Molding Defects

How can I get certified?
Certification will be awarded to individuals that have viewed all 70 Level 1 lessons and successfully complete a final certification exam. Follow this link for more details on the certification process and requirements. Certification is currently only available for Level 1. Certification for Level 2 is coming soon! 

How many questions are in the certification test?
There are 100 multiple choice and true/false questions on the certification test.

What percent do I need to get right on the certification test to pass?
A passing score of 80% correct is required for certification. Kruse Training Certification is awarded in three degrees, depending on your final grade:

  • 96-100% Master Certification
  • 90-95% Gold Certification
  • 80-89% Silver Certification

What happens if I fail the certification test? Can I retake it?
You will be eligible to retake the certification test after 6 months from the date of your last attempt.

What do I get if I finish the lessons and pass the certification test?
You will receive a printable personalized certificate in your email box from Kruse Training. The certificate will indicate which degree of certification you received based on your test score. And we will celebrate your success through our social media outlets.
