Which teachers completed the most On-Demand modules in the past school year? 

This week, we are celebrating the achievements of educators during the 2022-2023 school year with the annual NGPF Extra Mile Awards. Thousands of educators invested their time and effort participating in NGPF PD. The NGPF team thanks you for your commitment to financial education and for all of you who "went the extra mile." 

Today's post focuses on the educators who completed the most On-Demand modules. Future blog posts will recognize educators for their participation in NGPF Certification Courses and for overall participation in NGPF PD. 

NGPF On-Demand was introduced in January 2021 as a flexible way to accommodate your busy schedules. These self-paced modules deepen content knowledge on timely topics such as inflation, influencer marketing, bitcoin and buy now pay later. With a library of more than 40 modules to choose from, you have a lot of choice on PD you can complete at your own pace and your own schedule.

Shout out to the educators who completed more than 15,000 NGPF On-Demand modules in the 2022-2023 NGPF Academy year.
