They’re so SMART

St. Louis' latest SMART Certified Trainers SMART Certification Training goes beyond the basics with extensive hands-on training that enables educators to train others effectively. The credential participants receive gives them the required skills to deliver high-quality training for SMART Board. In April, a SMART Certification Training was held at Cooperating School Districts in St. Louis, Missouri. Earlier this week, Martha Bogart, Stacey Franks, Nancy George, Ruth Litman-Block and Karen Montgomery passed their Certification Assessment. Congrats!

Prior to the training in April, participants needed to complete a pre-certification and self sudy package (research, readings, competency checks and assignments). The actual training was three days. According to SMART’s website, “Training Certification for any of our offerings includes a focus on both methodology and content. Attendees gain a greater understanding of the order and flow that they would apply in their delivery.

The final day of SMART Training Certification includes an opportunity to learn and apply the methodology in a practice environment which prepares the candidate to effectively train their customers.”
