Students of the University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) who have graduated must do competency certification. Competency certification was the process of giving competency certificates carried out systematically and objectively through competency tests. This certification was a response to face industry 4.0.

"So that the accessor has good competence in testing." UMM currently has 93 accessors and 48 will be added to those who are still training," explained Ulum.
UMM provided 55 schemes. Before graduation, students must choose one of them to be tested. The scheme designed by LSP that adjusted to each Department at UMM. "However, there are several schemes that can be followed by students across Department," he continued.
Also, there was a scheme designed outside the Department that can be attended by all UMM students, such as entrepreneurship. In the near future, UMM LSP will add 20 new competency certification schemes. Competency certificates obtained by students will be juxtaposed with their certificate.
