Become a Handshake Certified Trainer

Tawnya -

Are you a Handshake expert, or would you like to become one? If so, the Handshake Certified Trainer is the program for you.

The Handshake Certified Trainer (HCT) program certifies career service and student professionals to train others on the basics and best practices of using Handshake. Our goal is to equip you with the knowledge and resources for effective professional training while providing opportunities for continued growth. HCTs have the opportunity to shape Handshake's first certification program and will receive a badge, certificate, access to beta features and much more. In return, HCTs must complete the entire Handshake University training curriculum, pass a knowledge test, and conduct staff trainings. HCTs recertify their status annually by passing our knowledge test.

The program is free and is open to career services and student staff at Handshake colleges and universities. We are currently revamping the entire HCT program for 2018. 

Improvements to the program will include the following:
- Opportunity to become certified in specific product areas and features of your choosing
- Access to separate trainings that will focus on advanced troubleshooting, tips, tricks and best practices in specific product areas
- Opportunity to become a go-to resource for your team and your peers in the Handshake space
- Continued access to participate in Beta programs for new and unreleased product updates

As we restructure this program, we will not be accepting any more Handshake Certified Trainer applications for 2017. You will however be able to apply for the 2018 Handshake Certified Trainer program later this year and we'll announce when we're ready to accept new applications.
