You may have noticed that "Smart" is not just a word to us, it's a philosophy. Our mission is very simple: to prepare educators for the rigors and joys of working with students. Our Smart Solutions make it possible by bringing them the training they need, on demand, at a price that both teachers and school districts can afford. Now that's Smart.
Already known as a premier provider of online substitute teacher training, we also offer professional development to full-time educators.
Created with current and former educators and administrators, our trainings are 100% relevant to the modern classroom. The techniques and skills taught are being actively used by successful educators and professionals across the country right now.
At first, I really didn't think that online school was a good idea, but I've changed my mind. Thus far it has been excellent and I am not a "computer person". The information that I have obtained and learned is on the level of my college courses. I thank you for this opportunity. S. Jensen, Ocala, FL
Our trainings are accessible 24/7 because they are entirely web-based. This also means learners can complete training on a flexible schedule and from the comfort of their own home. For those who don't have access to a computer at home, completion of required training can be done at local libraries and community centers. Regardless of location, the trainings are waiting for you whenever you're ready to learn.
This is an outstanding way for teachers to prepare for the classroom. I love that it's available to us at anytime. - M. Samman, New York, NY
Our programs are required by school districts and state educational/public welfare offices across the country. Training records are stored digitally, so training is "portable" to other school districts if should happen to relocate or wish to work in neighboring districts.
I completed my training for the Indianapolis school district but recently moved to Miami. Turns out they required the training too and were happy that I was already "done" with this step in my employment preparation. I didn't realize I'd get that much value from taking one training. - O. Mkembe, Indianapolis, IN
To all of you, from all of us - Thank you and Happy Training!
