Unity Certified User courseware
The Unity Certified User courseware, within GMetrix, provides a structured, self-study program that includes everything a student would need to tackle the Unity Certified User exams.

- 12 video-based modules with accompanying text references for key concepts (88 videos, approximately 10 hours)
- 3 distinct complete projects with associated assets that you or your students will complete in the Unity Editor
- Endless Runner – A 2D platformer game in the “endless runner” genre
- Bunny Ball – A third-person, 3D, physics-based arcade game
- Crash Scene – A low-poly 3D neighborhood scene with dynamic cameras and cut-scenes
- Embedded challenges and quizzes to reinforce learning
- The course should take about 20 hours to complete independently
