"Kasey Bell was the Google Certified Trainer I turned to when I wanted to get my Google Certifications. Her course is the most helpful of all of the review materials I used and made efficient use of my time. We purchased her Level 1 course for our whole school. I give my highest endorsement to Kasey and her work with Google. She knows the product but is also relatable and makes it simple."

- Vicki Davis, CoolCatTeacher.com, host of the 10-Minute Teacher Podcast

“A BIG TEXAS THANK YOU KASEY!!!! Your course gave me the confidence and preparation needed to pass this exam the first time! 

The google tips and tricks that you shared was a big help for me! ”  

- Gale Ching

“Thanks so much for this course! This helped me so much, more than I imagined. I've been teaching Google for so long, that I thought I had it pretty much down, but noooo!

Not only did I gain knowledge to pass the exam, I also gained some new tools to use with my students! Yay! Thanks so much Kasey!”  

- Mary Grub

"This course was well organized, detailed and totally prepared me for the Google exam! I loved that I could take it at my own pace, and especially that I could speed up the videos.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question before taking the plunge? We've got answers...

What if I am unhappy with the course?

We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund. 

How long does it take to complete the course and exam?

Since this is a self-paced course than can be personalized to fit your needs, the time to complete will vary. There are over 12 hours of video, but you may not need to watch every video. Some graduates blaze through in a week, others will work over several months. You set your own deadlines!

How long are the video lessons?

The videos range from about two and half minutes to over 45 minutes, depending on the content and purpose of the video. There is no average time length. The videos are divided into meaningful chunks of content and review lessons.

Google changes all the time. How often will this course be updated?

This course will be updated on a yearly basis unless there are major updates that affect the exam or the certification program itself. 

Who is this course for?

The Google Certified Educator program was designed for the classroom teacher but is open for anyone to pursue. It is recommended that you achieve Level 1 Certification before moving on to Level 2.

What's the purpose of the waitlist?

The waitlist is a special email list that will give you access to exclusive information, training, and content. (No purchase necessary.)

When does the course start and finish?

The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. 

How long will I have access to the course?  

How does lifetime access sound? At a minimum, you will have access to all the videos, tutorials, content, downloads, tips and tricks for ONE FULL YEAR! (Face-to-Face training cannot offer that!) But as long as we are offering this particular course in this format, you will have it. 

Do you have to be a classroom teacher to become a Google Certified Educator?

No, you do not have to be a teacher in a classroom, or even employed in education to take the exam. However, the exam and the training materials are designed with classroom teachers in mind. 

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.

Is the cost of the Google exam included?

Please note: This course does NOT include the cost of the exam, which must be purchased from Google for $10.

**Shake Up Learning and Kasey Bell do NOT grant certifications. Certifications come directly from Google.

Do you give professional learning credit?

Yes, each Google Certification course is worth 12-hours of credit. This is a general certificate that is not affiliated with any specific states or organizations. Every state and every country have different requirements. The completion certificate will state your name, the course, the hours, and be signed and verified by Kasey Bell from Shake Up Learning.

If I complete Level 1 and decide to pursue Level 2, do I have to wait until the next enrollment period to purchase?

No! In 2020, we are rolling out new options to continue learning and take your momentum to the next level. Details on how to purchase the next course will be included in the lessons at the end of your first course.

What's the difference between this course and the training offered in the Google Teacher Center? 

The Google Teacher Center is a great (and FREE) resource. Kasey has written a few of the lessons in the Teacher Center for Google. However, it doesn't meet the needs of everyone. Here's a comparison of the two options.

Can I get college credit?

We are exploring this as an option, but at this time, college credit is not given in this course.

Do you offer scholarships? 

Yes, new in 2020, we will be awarding scholarships to educators. You must be on the waitlist in order to receive scholarship information.
