Kagan Trainer Recertification

If you are not presently certified, and are looking to become certified, please Click here.

Types of Certified Kagan Trainers:

  • School: Kagan School Trainers may only train in one school (usually your own school). This applies to most certified trainers.
  • Associate: Associate Trainers train 10 days a year for Kagan and are allowed to train up to 200 teachers in their district. This is by application only. Click here for more information.

Process for Trainer Recertification

Kagan is committed to offering the highest quality professional development available. We update our team of trainers on a regular basis. We require Certified Kagan School Trainers to recertify every 3 years. In the past three years, we have made significant changes to our workshops. We are excited to share those updates with you.

What If I Don't Recertify?

Kagan maintains a database of the active Certified Kagan School Trainers. If you don't get re-certified within the 3-year period, your certification is no longer valid and you may not:

  • Legally teach Kagan workshops in your school.
  • Purchase Kagan training materials for your school.

What Can and Can't I Do with My Recertification?

Here's what you may and may not do with your recertification:

You May:

  • Legally teach Kagan workshops within one selected school (usually your own school) or district IF you are an Associate Trainer for Kagan.
  • Purchase Kagan training materials for your school or district workshops.

You May Not:

  • Teach Kagan workshops for a profit.
  • Train teachers outside of your selected school or district . To train teachers within your district, you must be an associate trainer.

How Do I Recertify?

There are two different options for recertification. Option #1 is the recommended option, but Kagan is offering another option to help you maintain your certification.

  • Option #1: Recertification Workshop
    This workshop is the preferred workshop for trainer recertification.
  • Option #2: School Trainer Workshop
    This workshop is similar to the school trainer workshop that was required as part of your initial certification. However, it has been changed to include important updates to the workshop content.
