Are you ready to get Google Certified? I can help!

The Google Certified Educator program can help you transform your classroom, save valuable time, facilitate digital learning with Google tools, increase professional growth, and become a digital leader!

Becoming Google Certified was one of the best decisions I ever made, and it transformed my learning and my career! This online self-paced course includes EVERYTHING you need to know to pass the Google Certified Educator Level 1 Exam.

  • 40+ Video Lessons (More than 11 hours of learning with me, Kasey Bell!)

  • Testing Tips
  • and much more!  

I have helped hundreds become Google Certified, and I know exactly what it takes to get there. This course is self-paced so you can learn when you have time and at your own pace. It's like having a trainer at your fingertips 24/7.

If you paid to attend a face-to-face boot camp, you would easily spend $299 or more for just two days of non-stop cramming. Make it easy on yourself, do this at your own pace. With an in-person training, it is just one-and-done!  

Who is this course for?  

The Google Certified Educator program was designed for the classroom teacher but is open for any educator to pursue.  

Why take an online course?  

Finding time to attend a Google Certification Boot Camp can be a challenge, and if you don’t have the support of your administrators it can be almost impossible to get time away from the classroom to pursue your dream of becoming a Google Education Certified Educator.  

Even if you do get to attend a face-to-face boot camp, often times it is overwhelming and too much too fast. You probably had no idea what you signed up for!  

This is why I decided to develop an online, self-paced course to help educators reach their goals and take their Google skills to the next level on their own time and at their own pace!

Testimonials! Here's what other teachers are saying:  

Below are just a few testimonials from the HUNDREDS of students who have taken the course and become Google Certified Educators!

“I am completing this course while trying to work around my children's busy summer schedules. I like that fact that it is self-paced, and I can access it at anytime. I also like how I can easily skip to certain sections. Great class! I really think this will help me as a teacher!”  

- Amy Kennedy

“I have been wanting to become a Google Certified Educator for a while. I found this course, the contents and the organization of it all to be just what I needed to begin this learning process. The format is versatile, with features to help the participant personalize their own learning path and pace. I am loving this course!”  

- Lesley Garcia

“This course is both informative and interesting. I like it better than the Fundamentals training that Google offers because it feels like I am learning from a real teacher who is sitting down with me and tutoring me. Kasey draws from her own experiences with students that gives me personal narratives to connect with the more how-to, technical information about Google products.

This isn't just about passing the GCE1 test! The VIP Bonus Material is like confetti that Kasey throws to expose teachers to the vast array of apps and "tricks" that I can use to make me a better teacher in an increasingly digital environment. No time to research the ocean of online resources? Let Kasey pass on all her hard work and learning to you!"

- Sue Eckert

"Just passed my Level 1 exam!!! So stoked! Now on to Level 2. Thanks so much Kasey, you made things so much easier!"  

- Kim Armor

"I used Kasey's course to review all the concepts and give me confidence to rock that test! +Kasey Bell, I LOVE how you present everything with such clarity and excitement."

- Stephanie Smith 

"Thank you +Kasey Bell for a wonderful course; I have learned so much. I am ready to put all my learnings into practice."

- Katharine Grudt

"Thanks +Kasey Bell! I passed and am thank for your videos. I completed the Google training this past spring and it was helpful. Kasey's videos were much easier to follow and well organized. TIP: If I was familiar with her lesson I would watch the video at a faster speed then slow down for new or unfamiliar information. Hope this helps. Good luck everyone!"

- Donna Wood

"Woo-hoo! Just finished my test and passed! Had time to go over some of the questions. It was grueling. This class definitely prepared me. Thank you +Kasey Bell!"

- Joan May

"I just wanted to chime in here as another totally satisfied customer. I just finished (and passed) the exam with about 90 minutes to spare.  

To prepare, I went through all of your lessons and lesson checks + the VIP challenges and then I went through the .pdf lesson checks just one more time. I didn't go through the Google Training at all. However, I had started to go through those three years ago and found it tedious and time-consuming so I just never finished. You have organised the material in a user-friendly (and engaging) way.  

I was so nervous, but your course totally prepared me! I look forward to the Level 2 course!  

Again, thank you so much! You have helped me feel more confident as I start a new role at my school as the High School Technology Integration Coach."

- Alyssa Passey Ballard
