As you may know, Google Edu Certification Exams were closed last Spring 2015 to undergo a major update and revamp of the current system and exams.  As of mid July 2015, the new exams were opened as well as new certification system and training center. There are now 2 certifications titled Google Educator Level 1 and Google Educator Level 2. Level 1 is for those who have learned the fundamentals of Google Apps for Education and Level 2 is for advanced users of Google Apps for Education.  Users do not have to attain Level 1 certification prior to Level 2 certification.

Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13 is pleased to have joined with IU12 and IU15 to offer our first ever Google Certification Educator Level 2 Boot Camp via Rick Kiker from Kiker Learning. In this partnership, we are offering a 2 day Boot Camp that each IU is inviting district participants who are interested in participating.  Since space is limited for each IU, we have determined that up through the end of September 2015, each district may register one participant from their district.  Starting on October 1, 2015 additional spaces (up to 50 from each IU) will open for remaining participants.  This is what you need to know:

Day 1 is Nov. 20, 2015 at Lincoln Intermediate Unit 12

Day 2 is Dec. 4, 2015 at Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13

If you are located in the IU12 or IU15 areas, please register via your IUs registration system.  All IU13 districts/schools and all others (outside IU12 and IU15) need to register by clicking here
