Fire Emblem: Three Houses Classes And Certification Exam Requirements Guide

It is important to consider your character classes in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, helping you to chart their path to unlocking the powerful Master Classes.

Changing your character’s Classes will not only require a Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, or Master Seal, but that they pass the relevant Certification Exam. These exams in themselves will need the characters to have acquired specific Skill levels, so here’s everything that you need to know.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses Skills

Your students will gain Skill experience from your teaching and the actions that they perform with a particular weapon (or magic type) on the battlefield. This will steadily build their Skill level, and, once increased, they will unlock new abilities and combat arts.

There are 11 Skills in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, which are: Sword, Lance, Axe, Bow, Brawl, Reason, Faith, Authority, Heavy Armor, Riding, and Flying. For each character, these will have Skill levels that will range from E to S+.

These levels are used to determine how likely a character is to pass a Certification Exam, as well as whether they can meet the requirements to take it in the first place.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses Class Certification Exams

It is explained that Certification Exams represent how your characters progress “to become a certain type of soldier,” and, in order to pass the exam, you will need to make sure that they have trained hard enough to become whichever class you want them to be.

You will need to own a Seal to allow a character to enter a Certification Exam, which also has other requirements such as your character’s Skill levels.

Pass the exam, and your character will be able to change to a higher-tier class that will boost their stats and growth rates.
