Google Training Center Offers Certifications

Now that we have been on Google Apps for Education almost a year, you might be interested to know that Google offers four different levels of certifications. The site offers online training, practice, and information about the exams. See the details about each certification level below. If your Principal approves, this training could count toward the comp days in Nov.
