Announcing CERTIFIED Academy

It’s 2023 and a new year means new changes here at Certiport. We’re so excited to kick-off the new year with our revamped professional development program. Get ready for CERTIFIED Academy!

What is CERTIFIED Academy?

CERTIFIED Academy is an immersive online professional development program for educators. Combining the best of our former Certiport Academy and Bootcamp programs, CERTIFIED Academy is your chance to learn from your fellow educators and industry professionals and certify your own skills.

With CERTIFIED Academy, you get exposed to the power of our clients’ technology platforms, and dive into available resources for your classroom. You can join some of the country’s best education experts, to hone your skills in training sessions and panel discussions. You can also learn about our full pathway of curriculum, practice tests, and certification exams. And all these sessions are free!

For those who want additional resources (and even want to earn their own industry certification), we’re offering a CERTIFIED Academy Bootcamp. Bootcamp participants will be able to access additional recorded webinars and sample class projects you can use with your students. Plus, you can select a certification exam you’d like to take at the end of the CERTIFIED Academy course and get full access to curriculum and practice tests to prepare for your testing day.

As a bonus, all CERTIFIED Academy participants will receive a professional development certificate, allowing you to demonstrate the hours you spent learning and growing through CERTIFIED Academy. Plus, those who register for the CERTIFIED Academy Bootcamp can get a discount on your registration for our annual CERTIFIED Educator’s Conference. Keep the learning going!

The choice is yours. Find a course for you.

We know that you don’t have time to waste on webinars that don’t apply to your students or courses. We’ve split CERTIFIED Academy into three courses so you can engage with content and fellow educators that align with your curriculum. Find out which CERTIFIED Academy course will work best for you!

But how much is it?

We know that for many teachers, budgets are tight and there’s not room in the budget to pay for additional training. We get it! That’s why each CERTIFIED Academy course is free. All training sessions are available at no cost to you.

For educators who want to earn a certification and participate in the CERTIFIED Academy Bootcamp, there is a $150 fee to cover learning material, practice tests, and a certification exam (proctored remotely on a date you select). Those who want to take more than one certification can pay an additional $50 per exam, up to three exams total.
