What Others Are Saying

Here's what course graduates have to say...

“I learned so much from you. I took 25 pages of notes from your course. I thought I needed to use all my notes and I didn't because you taught everything so well. Thank you so very much... you are worth every penny - and then some!!! ”  

- Prissy Metting

“Kasey, thank you so much for the course! The video tutorials were fantastic and they gave me the skills I needed to pass the exam. I particularly liked how you talked through the review questions. Your course helped me to overcome my fear of Google sheets. I am now onto your Google Trainer course, thanks so much for mentoring me through my journey. #blessyourheart”  

- Jacinta Keenan

"Kasey, Thank you for another great class. My mind is bursting with new ideas and my digital tool belt has definitely been expanded. We are moving to the PYP (inquiry model) this year, so there will be LOTS of opportunity to support learning and develop learners with these tools."  

- Leslee Rupp

“YES!!! Whoo Hoo!!! You are the greatest, Kasey. Your course really helped me to prepare and have the confidence I needed. Level 2 was a mixed bag of emotions between, "heck yeah, that's easy" to "Oh My Gosh! What the Devil" and everything in between. But with our advice and guidance I made it. Thanks so much!"  

- Lori Richardson

"I am an Instructional Technology Specialist at the high school level. Thank you for putting together thoughtful and easy to understand training materials. I passed on my first try! I have attended a 'bootcamp' in the past, but it felt too rushed and I didn't feel comfortable attempting the exam.  

As a bonus, you get several tips that don't impact passing the exam but do help with your professional practice. "  

- Terri Smolka

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question before taking the plunge? We've got answers...

What if I am unhappy with the course?

We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund. 

How long does it take to complete the course and exam? 

Since this is a self-paced course than can be personalized to fit your needs, the time to complete will vary. There are over 12 hours of video, but you may not need to watch every video. Some graduates blaze through in a week, others will work over several months. You set your own deadlines!

How long are the video lessons?

The videos range from about two and half minutes to over 45 minutes, depending on the content and purpose of the video. There is no average time length. The videos are divided into meaningful chunks of content and review lessons.

Google changes all the time. How often will this course be updated. 

This course will be updated on a yearly basis unless there are major updates that affect the exam or the certification program itself. 

What's the purpose of the waitlist?

The waitlist is a special email list that will give you access to exclusive information, training, and content. (No purchase necessary.)

When does the course start and finish?

The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. 

How long will I have access to the course?  

How does lifetime access sound? At a minimum, you will have access to all the videos, tutorials, content, downloads, tips and tricks for ONE FULL YEAR! (Face-to-Face training cannot offer that!) But as long as we are offering this particular course in this format, you will have it.  

Do you have to be a classroom teacher to become a Google Certified Educator?

No, you do not have to be a teacher in a classroom, or even employed in education to take the exam. However, the exam and the training materials are designed with classroom teachers in mind. 

Who is this course for?

The Google Certified Educator program was designed for the classroom teacher but is open for any educator to pursue. It is recommended that you achieve Level 1 Certification before moving on to Level 2.

Is the cost of the Google exam included?

Please note: This course does NOT include the cost of the exam ($25), which must be purchased from Google.

**Shake Up Learning and Kasey Bell do NOT grant certifications. Certifications come directly from Google.

Do you give professional learning credit?

Yes, each Google Certification course is worth 12-hours of credit. This is a general certificate that is not affiliated with any specific states or organizations. Every state and every country have different requirements. The completion certificate will state your name, the course, the hours, and be signed and verified by Kasey Bell from Shake Up Learning.

If I complete Level 1 and decide to pursue Level 2, do I have to wait until the next enrollment period to purchase?

No! In 2020, we are rolling out new options to continue learning and take your momentum to the next level. Details on how to purchase the next course will be included in the lessons at the end of your first course.

Why take an online course?

Finding time to attend a Google Certification Boot Camp can be a challenge, and if you don’t have the support of your administrators it can be almost impossible to get time away from the classroom to pursue your dream of becoming a Google Education Certified Educator.

What's the difference between this course and the training offered in the Google Teacher Center?  

The Google Teacher Center is a great (and FREE) resource. Kasey has written a few of the lessons in the Teacher Center for Google. However, it doesn't meet the needs of everyone. Here's a comparison of the two options.

Can I get college credit?

We are exploring this as an option, but at this time, college credit is not given in this course.

Do you offer scholarships? 

Yes, new in 2020, we will be awarding scholarships to educators. You must be on the waitlist in order to receive scholarship information.
