Become a Handshake Certified Trainer

Jordan Pedraza -

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. Learn more and apply to become a Handshake Certified Trainer here:
