In the UK schools, you can get an A-Level course on Critical Thinking.
(A-Level certificates count towards university entrance qualifications).

    *  AS Unit 1: Credibility of Evidence
    * AS Unit 2: Assessing and Developing Argument
    * A2 Unit 3: Resolution of Dilemmas
    * A2 Unit 4: Critical Reasoning

Although this course teaches pupils how to think clearly,
unfortunately, many universities do not accept this as a 'proper'
course, like History or Physics, and will not accept this certificate
as part of your university entrance qualification.
