  • SPARK institutes are not “Train the Trainer” programs. Completing both Institute days earns the title “SPARK Certified Instructor,” which is different than a “SPARK Certified Trainer.” A Trainer is licensed to conduct SPARK workshops for colleagues in their school, district or community. If you are interested in becoming a SPARK Certified Trainer, there is a program for that. Contact SPARK for more information.

  • To ensure the rights and privacy of our attendees, no videotaping is allowed by participants during SPARK Institute sessions.
