Blue Certification Camps at the Bluenotes Global 2018 Conference

With popular request, we have designed two instructor-led face-to-face Blue certification training camps at the Bluenotes Global 2018 conference – the Blue Administrator Certification (BAC) training camp and the Blue eXpert Certification (BEC) training camp.

Blue Administrator Certification Training Overview

The Blue Administrator Certification training program is the foundation of your learning path to learn and get proficient in using Blue. This modularized training program will give you the fundamentals needed in order to run a feedback process using Blue. This is the first-level of Blue certification for all users who will be administering any feedback process with Blue.

For more information about the BAC training structure, module content, learning outcomes, and certification exam, please refer to the Blue Administrator Training and Certification page.

Who Should Attend?

This program is for people who will be administering feedback processes using Blue. This can be:

  • The person implementing their feedback process for the first time
  • The person who has some experience in using Blue but has not undertaken any formal training
  • The person who wishes to reskill on the latest version of Blue

Blue Administrator Certification Camp Structure

This specially designed instructor-led, face-to-face Blue Administrator certification camp at the Bluenotes Global 2018 conference is to be delivered in a blended format where face-to-face training at the camp is combined with computer-mediated activities regarding content and delivery, in order to accommodate the participants to the conference. It is structured as follows:

  • Self-learning before the camp: 1-day worth of self-directed content learning (to be completed before the 2-day face-to-face camp at the Bluenotes Global 2018 Conference) to familiarize yourself with Blue concepts and terms that will be required for the subsequent 2-day face-to-face camp. We expect you to read and learn the content before the face-to-face camp sessions begin so you can fully learn and participate in the in-person training camp experience.
  • Camp: 2-day face-to-face camp at the Bluenotes Global 2018 Conference.
  • We recommend the camp participants attend the Bluenotes Global 2018 pre-conference workshops on August 7 to further their knowledge on Blue.
  • Blue Administrator Certificates are awarded upon successful completion of the Blue Administrator Certification exam.

Key Benefits and Learning Outcomes

Upon the successful completion of the BAC training program, a training participant will be able to:

  • Learn basic Blue fundamental concepts, terminologies, and basic functionality to build and manage standard feedback processes using Blue
  • Identify ways in which Blue can be used to provide automation, autonomy, and insight into their organization’s feedback processes
  • Use Blue to build, manage, and automatically distribute insightful reports using:

Blue eXpert Certification Training Overview

The Blue eXpert Certification (BEC) Training is designed to further develop your knowledge and expertise of advanced Blue features so that you can implement any feedback process at varying degrees of complexity. The expert certification requires approximately 40 hours of your time: including a 3-day instructor-led training camp followed by 6-weeks of sandbox experience, consisting of approximately 8 hours of hands-on sandbox exercises taken at your own pace, supported by three 2-hour bi-weekly online review sessions. Blue eXpert Certificates are awarded upon successful completion of the BEC Training exam.

For more information about the BEC training structure, topics covered, learning outcomes, and certification exam, please refer to the Blue eXpert Training and Certification page.

Who Should Attend?

This program is for people who will be administering feedback processes using Blue. This can be:

  • Those who have experience using Blue autonomously through at least one evaluation cycle in their own institutions or organizations

Becoming Certified

  • Implement further automation in your feedback processes
  • Develop and deliver richer reports to support your decision makers
  • Gain greater autonomy in the use of Blue to administer any feedback process

Following the bootcamp, you will absorb and put into practice your new knowledge in a dedicated sandbox environment. Complete the exercises in the exercise guide at your own pace before you take the certification exam online. The exam will test both your conceptual and practical knowledge of Blue through a multiple choice questionnaire, essay-type questions and practical examples that demonstrate your newly developed expertise. Our team will then meet with you through live online correspondence to review your results, before your certificate is issued.

Key Benefits and Learning Outcomes

With the completion of the Blue eXpert Certification training program, a training participant will be able to:

  • Provide a greater level of autonomy to end users and actionable insights to decision-makers involved in the feedback process, by acquiring a deeper understanding of the Blue fundamental concepts and functionalities that help drive automation of any feedback process
  • Explain how the DIG, BTA and BPI tools can be used with Blue to further extend its power and use them in their environments, appropriately
  • Find well-vetted solutions to current challenges and opportunities that you are facing by discussing them with the instructor and other experienced Blue users in your BEC training cohort
  • Be part of the Blue eXpert community, and have access to BETA functionality in a shared sandbox environment
  • Have the access to the training sandbox use for one year post training camp, which gives you access to the latest releases and all modules regardless of your product licenses, as well as the ability to upload your own data for testing and improvement prior to implementing in your own institution
