SCORM Certification

PLEASE NOTE: SCORM Certifications (1.2 and 2004 3rd edition) are currently on hold while we prepare for the new 2004 4th edition certification process.


The Academic ADL Co-Laboratory provides independent, third-party SCORM auditing for learning management systems and content through its Wisconsin Testing Organization.  Systems certified by this process are listed on a page at the ADL Initiative website.

There are currently two versions of SCORM that can be certified – SCORM 1.2, and the newer SCORM 2004. Each version has LMS (Learning Management System) certification level(s) and content certification level(s).

The general process (see flowchart) is the same for all certification versions and types. Note: The Wisconsin Testing Organization will not begin the certification process without your Self Test Suite logs.You may obtain the Test Suite and support for it at

The minimum fee for SCORM 1.2 LMS or content certification is $500 USD. Because of more intensive testing requirements, the minimum fee for SCORM 2004 LMS certification is $2000 USD, while SCORM 2004 Content certification is $1000 USD minimum. Total costs are based on the time and complexity of individual tests.
