Best of all, my application was approved and I am now a Google for Education Certified Trainer!"

How long does it take to complete the course and application requirements for Trainer?

This is a self-paced course than can be personalized to fit your needs, the time to complete will vary. There are around 6 hours of video in the Trainer course. 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 35 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.
Who is this course for?
The Google Certified Trainer program is for those who are currently in a position to offer Google training, or aspire to become a trainer. (Must have proven experience before you submit your application.)
Is the cost of the Google exam included?
Please note: This course does NOT include the cost of the exam, 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.
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.
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 Trainer.
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.
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.
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. Details are on this page.
