10 Google Certification Tips Will Help You

Each certification has been designed for a specific type of educator.
The level 1 exam was created for teachers who are using G Suite for Education, Chromebooks, google classroom, etc, on a daily basis.
The level 2 exam was created for a teacher who is not only using the products for the level 1 test but is also familiar with things like blogger, Youtube, Google maps, and groups.
Make sure you understand the tools and skills that are included in the exam that you plan on taking.
I don’t have space in this post to dig into the details of the level 1 and 2 exams.
