Each step can be completed with an exam. Students who score sufficiently get a certificate appropriate to each step.
It is advisable when preparing for the examination to let the children make a test examination first, and if necessary a second time in case of doubt. However, try to prevent that they do test examinations many times. It will put a severe strain on their enthusiasm, and it emphasizes the examination and the certificate too much.
The English version will appear in 2005.
Rupert van der Linden has designed a colourful certificate.
The piece on the statue will change for each step. As a foretaste, you can see here the German version.
