Google Educator Certification

Get certified and show how you’ve mastered G-Suite for education. G-Suite is the service that the district has from Google. G-Suite includes Doc, Sheets, Mail, Slides, etc. This program will take you from novice to expert. Honestly, both levels involve a lot of work. However, if you stick to it, you will become an expert in utilizing G-Suite for education. (And you get a cool digital badge for each level.)
