CERTIFIED 2024: Call for Sessions Now Open

It’s that time of year again! We’re starting preparations for the 2024 CERTIFIED Educator Conference, and we want YOU to be a part of it.

What Is the CERTIFIED Educator Conference?

CERTIFIED is the only education conference dedicated to exploring the pure potential and promise of certification in the classroom. It’s an opportunity to listen, learn, and collaborate with a community of educators who share your passion for using certification to improve education and change lives.

Nearly all our CERTIFIED sessions are presented by educators just like you. As we prepare and finalize our content for our sessions, we want to give you a chance to share your expertise. Sharing your new ideas and paths to success is the best way to help Certiport’s educator community.

Should I Apply to Present at CERTIFIED?

At CERTIFIED 2024, it will be more important than ever to share the strategies and teaching methods you’ve developed over the years. Think about the following questions:

  • Am I trying to create an innovative learning environment?
  • Do I love going above and beyond to help my students succeed?
  • Do I manage and execute a thriving certification program?
  • Is my school forging new paths or setting new standards in excellence that I just can't wait to tell others about?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, then we want to hear from you!
