What is a SMART Certified Trainer?

Being a SMART Certified Trainer is your assurance that candidates have invested the time to learn how to deliver a high-quality training session. Certified Trainers are authorized to deliver carefully designed training programs that have been tested in hundreds of sessions by SMART’s Training Services department. Choosing a SMART Certified Trainer ensures your attendees will get information that is immediately applicable to the jobs they do.

The following topics are included in the full-day workshop:
·         Hardware and basic functionality
·         Working with applications: Microsoft® Word, Excel and PowerPoint®
·         Using SMART Notebook software  - including advanced handwriting, grouping, print capture and attachments
·         SMART Recorder
·         Video Player
·         Control Panel
·         Other training resources

What Are the Criteria?

All Certification Trainers have completed pre-certification requirements to ensure they have the skills to train others. These requirements have four main components:
·         Receiving instructions on how to use SMART’s extensive online training materials
·         Attending an online learning session and completing various learning objectives
·         Submitting a pre-certification assignment to SMART’s Certification Trainer
·         Attending a SMART  Training event or session

During the Session
At the certification workshop, candidates practice delivering training material to ensure consistent and accurate information is provided during their sessions. There are two types of training materials provided during the workshop:
·         A SMART  Session Facilitator’s Guide that outlines best practices on how to use the SMART Board interactive whiteboard
·         A resource CD-ROM with presentation files and examples to supplement their training

The certification process does not end after the workshop.
·         Certified Trainers are required to submit a sample of their training to SMART’s Senior Certification Trainer for final evaluation
·         Certified Trainers must also submit monthly reports containing the number of sessions and quality of the sessions as determined by the Learner Feedback Form
