Changes for Existing HCEs

To date, Hapara has had a very successful Hapara Certified Educator Program. By the end of this Cohort in December 2016, we will have almost 300 HCE’s globally. With this success comes some important changes to our program. We are moving to a 4 Level System shown below. As existing HCEs, depending on your Cohort number you will automatically become certified in either Level 1 (Hapara Champion Educator) and/or Level 2 (Hapara Champion Scholar).

Hapara Champion Educator courses are free to complete, however there are small fees associated with each certification exam that cover the cost of assessing the exams.

Hapara Champion Certification is awarded to educators who demonstrate excellence in this rigorous program.

The Hapara Champion Certification Program is a series of courses designed to teach Hapara users not only how to use Hapara to its fullest, but also the pedagogy behind its design and how to incorporate Hapara into transformative instruction.
To date, Hapara has had a very successful Hapara Certified Educator Program. When our current cohort completes their training in December 2016, we will have almost 300 HCEs globally.
