I'm glad you asked that question Davide!
What qualifies this exam as valid? Three points:
1. The Construct is the issuer of the certificate. The Construct is a serious company composed by ROS experts with many years experience in hands on ROS development. Check some of our work [here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-odzZPCdSlk), [here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5zQF5-dEWQ) and [here](http://www.theconstructsim.com/the-construct-will-participate-in-the-iros-2016teaching-robotics-with-cloud-simulations/).
1. The exam is made using a live system that controls along the whole exam that the person doing the exam is the one that receives the certificate. We use camera validation and check during the whole process, as well as request ID prior to the exam to certify that the person on the camera is the person who is doing the exam.
1. Students must get 8 out of 10 points in the exam in order to get the certificate. This is a though exam which requires that the student masters all the subjects related to his level of certificate. You cannot pass the exam if you only master a small part of the subjects you should know for the exam. Just being lucky will not work. The extra 2 points to reach the total 10, are given to students that, additionally to master ROS, do master A.I. algorithms required to solve the proposed exam problem (this is something not related to ROS at all, that is why it is optional).
Hope this answers your doubts and decide to take the chances with the exam.
Waiting for your enrolment!
