Your Final Project will need to be saved in a .pdf format and sent to S.A.I. from the Submission Process page found in every program or course that requires a Final Project to be submitted to be awarded a Certification.


b. Review

Once your Final Project is submitted, you will receive a confirmation notification and our Educational Team will review the document you submitted.

The review process usually takes less than 10 days.
