Who Should Attend?

Basics

The Certified Instructor Training is a three day workshop held at the facilities of the Institute of Science & Technology in Kansas City, MO.  It is geared for attendees who already hold the Acellus Administrator Certification and are actively administering an Acellus deployment in their school or district.

Instead of working in generic scenarios, such as in the initial Acellus Administrator Certification course, attendees will see and analyze real data from their own teachers and students and work with the Acellus tools to customize and fine-tune their deployments to get the best results.

Why Should I Attend?

Benefits

The Certified Instructor Training is designed to empower educators with techniques they can use to take their existing implementation to a new level of success and effectiveness.

Attendees will work with our Senior Trainers to identify the unique issues and set-backs their schools are facing and learn innovative ways to address areas of concern.  Attendees will be armed with the latest tools and resources to make a positive change in their students’ educational experiences.

The participants completing the advanced training will be awarded a certificate as an Acellus Educational Technology Instructor. Persons receiving this advanced certification will be authorized to provide teacher development and training which will help qualify teachers for continuing education credits through the Institute of Science and Technology.

  • Hands-on lab experience perfecting your school’s implementation
