"Last year was the inaugural CERTIFIED Conference - it was a huge success and by the end of the conference attendees were already asking about the 2016 event," said Aaron Osmond, general manager, Certiport a Pearson VUE business. "Not only did they have fun, they learned with a community of educators who share a passion for using certification to improve education."
CERTIFIED will feature three days of educator-led breakout sessions, discovery sessions, keynote addresses, and networking activities designed to help educators serve their students, improve their teaching, and enhance their career. The final keynote address will be given by Manuel Scott, an original Freedom Writer who had lived in 26 places by the age of 16. Scott overcame drug and alcohol addiction and will share the story of how he went from being labeled as 'unreachable' and 'unteachable,' to being a successful entrepreneur and college graduate working on his Ph.D.
