Tier 1 Self-Study Certification

With our flexible training options, you can choose the path that works best for you:

  • Self-Study: Dive into self-paced modules at your convenience.
  • Trainer-Led Hybrid Training: Attend live, interactive sessions led by our expert trainers plus self-study modules.
  • Exclusive Group Training: Join a cohort of your agency peers for a more collaborative learning experience.

The self-study certification is an engaging, productive, and fun learning experience via our online learning platform, the Great Kids Academy. Staff are required to be certified in GGK before using the curriculum with families.

The GGK Next Generation P-36 Tier I Self-Study certification consists of approximately 34 hours of learning content that is suggested to be completed over one or two weeks.

It is best practice to avoid scheduling unnecessary meetings and blocking time to complete the training. Participants must complete each portion of the self-study to receive a certificate noting they completed 34 hours of learning content.
