Google for Education : G Suite Training For Teachers 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Governor McMaster’s executive orders declaring a state of emergency, and our own desire to keep everyone as safe as possible, Trident Academy is unable to offer our Google for Education course at this time.  Please check back for future updates, and feel free to contact Kyle Brown ( with any questions you may have.


Dates: Monday June 8th – Friday June 12th

Time: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm (with appropriate breaks)

Where: Trident Academy

Who: Beginners and novices of Google for Education’s G Suite tools

Cost: $700.00




This course, taught by Google for Education Certified Trainer Kyle Brown, is designed for teachers who are beginners or novices with Google for Education’s range of applications (collectively called “G Suite”).  This course will concentrate primarily on features that will help the teachers if they choose to take the Level 1 Google Certified Teacher online exam, but we will also learn about some of the “hidden gems” of educational offerings from Google and other related software developers. 

This course is limited to the first 12 people to register.  If there is enough demand, a second session may be added the week of June 15th -19th.     

Course Requirements

  • Your own laptop, with working wi-fi capabilities (Chromebook, Windows, or Mac). 
  • The Google Chrome web browser installed on your laptop.
  • A Google for Education account (this is usually your school-issued email address) or a personal Google/Gmail account.  I would prefer you to use your Google for Education account if you have one, so you can easily use the material from this course for your own classes.
