Is ManageBac Training Academy intended for new users or those with prior ManageBac experience?

Our hosts and guest presenters cater workshop content to suit all levels of user experience. The basics are covered to give new users foundations to build upon, and a wealth of best practices are also shared to support our more seasoned users. If you are interested in being a guest presenter at a future Training Academy workshop, please contact our community team.

Do I need to be a ManageBac Admin to attend?

We provide guidance on the intended audience for each session in the Workshop Schedule above, and on each registration page. Many workshops are suitable for a range of different users, but if you have any queries about a particular session, please contact our community team! We especially welcome users who have recently taken on more responsibility for their school’s ManageBac account.

Is there a cost to attend ManageBac Training Academy workshops?

Registration for each Training Academy workshop is priced at $29USD. This cost includes all workshop resources, a recording of the session, and a certificate of participation, which can be used to evidence your professional development. All ManageBac Training Academy graduates are also invited to progress to our ManageBac Certified Educator programme – allowing you to formally advance your knowledge of the ManageBac platform and associated best practices. More details will be shared with Training Academy participants following their workshop.

I'm looking for training on other topics not covered in the topic list.
