Why become Google Edu ‘Certified?’

The Google Educator Certifications showcase your knowledge and application of innovative tools and techniques to engage learners and promote a 21st century collaborative learning environment.  Educators that use Google Apps for Education have a strong collaborative network where knowledge is shared, problems are solved and successes are celebrated together.  Becoming a Certified Educator gives you recognition for your hard work and expertise. The training and exams are performance based that focus on real world classroom application.  

This is a great preparation for further certification opportunities.  Google Certified Innovators  lead change in their communities and Google Certified Trainers lead training and professional development worldwide.  Each certification has it’s own set of requirements, benefits, and expectation to maintain.  This course will cover each of these so participants can purposefully select the best path and objectives to meet their needs.

Program overview

Our Google Education Certification courses help prepare you to complete the certification process which is comprised of hands on training & a performance based exam.   The courses offer preparation training with the two day option providing more time for hands on activities and with exam account set up, registration & test taking tips.

Our courses are fun, engaging and educational and the first and most important thing to stress is not to be scared of the tests.   We will help you prepare for success!

What is the format of the certification process and our ‘preparation training’?

Based on numerous successful engagements running the certification course with schools and colleges worldwide we have developed what we feel is the optimum process to help get candidates through the certification process quickly and successfully.

Setting expectations

In terms of the time needed to complete the certification process this will vary from individual to individual.  Our goal is that you be prepared to begin your exams by the end of the course day and pass them.  Many of participants leave and share with our new PLN that they have successfully completed one or more of the exams.  It is important, however, that you prepare adequately and make sure you have reviewed all of the training materials.   The certification boot camps are not an introduction to Google Apps for Education.  It is expected that attendees have baseline working knowledge of at least gMail, Google Drive, and the Chrome browser.
