Professional Development Specialist

Certica Solutions - Multiple Locations or Remote - Full time

At Certica, we are passionate about creating solutions that bring value to K-12 educators and are revolutionizing the way school districts manage, access, and use data to improve student outcomes. We are a growing, fast-moving organization with a smart and dedicated team, looking for like-minded individuals to join us. We offer competitive compensation and a comprehensive benefits package.

We are seeking an experienced, high energy, highly motivated Professional Development (PD) Specialist to join our fast-growing PD team to deliver high quality programs to our CASE Benchmark customers.

The CASE Benchmark Assessments are state-aligned assessments that mirror the rigor of a state assessment and measure the proficiency of state standards for each student—with a 95% predictability rate of actual performance on state assessments. CASE assessments also provide teachers timely feedback to identify the areas in which students need assistance.

CASE provides valid predictable data but knowing how to use the data can make a genuine difference in instruction and student achievement. Certica’s professional development services provide multiple levels of instruction with adaptive elements within those levels—depending on the level needed. Our Professional Development programs instruct teachers to use the data they receive and make it actionable to drive instruction.

This is an exciting full-time opportunity to work for a great company with great employees and a leadership team that values and appreciates them.

We would like this position to be a remote position based in Kentucky, Mississippi or Tennessee.
