Learn About the Program:
Dynamic Blackboard® training involves effective instructional design as well as strong product knowledge. Since good training can increase user adoption and improve course quality, the Certified Trainer Program provides best practices in delivering training to diverse users. In this program, participants learn techniques for training success:

  • Plan curriculum using established instructional design principles
  • Deliver training that engages learners interactively
  • Design dynamic instructional support tools
  • Connect Blackboard tools to good teaching practices

The program consists of an interactive online course and onsite evaluation activities. As the program does not provide specific product training, participants should already have experience using Blackboard Learn™ course delivery technology prior to enrollment.

Join the Blackboard Certified Trainer Community:
Blackboard Certified Trainers continue to engage after their training program. A private collaborative website and ongoing exclusive webinars provide opportunities to exchange ideas, share best practices, and learn new training techniques. In addition, Certified Trainers receive a discount on Blackboard Training Materials Packages and have opportunities to interact at BbWorld events. To join this community of over 400 Blackboard training professionals, you must have successfully completed the Blackboard Certified Trainer program.

Maintain Your Certification – Renew Now:
All Blackboard Certified Trainers must renew their certification every two years in order to remain part of the Certified Trainer Community. To check your renewal status, please write to certifiedtrainer@blackboard.com. You may renew online at our Training Registration Center.
