Certification indicates a fundamental understanding of using Google Tools in the classroom and confirms standard technology implementation skills. This workshop is designed for teachers that have a solid base of implementing the Google tools in their classroom and is not designed as an introduction to Google tools. Educators who pass the certification test can advertise their status with a personalized certificate and badge. Certification lasts 36 months.
