Develop. Learn. Enjoy.
Immerse yourself in the CERTIFIED Academies, an engaging online professional development program designed specifically for CTE educators.
About the CERTIFIED Academy
The CERTIFIED Academies are an immersive online professional development program for CTE educators. Educators can get involved throughout the year with the business, design, and IT CERTIFIED Academies. This is your chance to learn from your fellow educators and industry professionals. Discover new ways of teaching, and dive into available resources for your classroom. Plus, those who register will receive a professional development certificate, allowing you to demonstrate the hours you spent learning and growing through CERTIFIED Academy.
What if I want a more immersive experience? In addition to weekly training sessions, educators can add the CERTIFIED Academy: Bootcamp experience. Bootcamp participants will be able to access additional recorded webinars and sample class projects. Plus, bootcamp participants can take a proctored certification exam at the end of the CERTIFIED Academy course and get full access to curriculum and practice tests to prepare for testing day.
Learn with fellow Educators
The CERTIFIED Academies are dedicated to helping you grow as an educator and to equip you with the tools needed to help your students succeed. Certiport hosts three CERTIFIED Academies and Bootcamps per year, each with a different focus.
