Introducing the NGPF Distinguished Educator Award!

You commit countless hours each year learning about the latest trends in personal finance, brushing up on core money skills, and investigating research-backed teaching strategies with NGPF Professional Development. We want to celebrate your commitment with a new award!

Today, we recognize the highly credentialed teachers who have achieved the status of NGPF Distinguished Educator by earning any combination of 6 or more NGPF Certifications.

Certification Courses are NGPF’s most in-depth professional development format. Each course combines 10 hours of live virtual sessions focused on a core personal finance content area with 80%+ passage on a corresponding certification exam. These courses are 100% FREE, and 33 States and Washington, DC accept them for State CEUs, but they are a serious commitment. 

Needless to say, getting Certified by NGPF in 6+ personal finance topics shows an outstanding and well-rounded dedication to your craft as a personal finance educator. Each quarter (corresponding with NGPF Academy Swag shipments), our team will review Certification records to identify which educators have surpassed the 6 Certification mark.

When you accomplish the feat, you’ll receive:

  • A physical NGPF Distinguished Educator plaque for your classroom,
  • Special recognition on the NGPF website, and
  • An exclusive NEW digital badge for your email & online resume

This is a lifetime award you can accumulate over multiple NGPF Academy years.

Even more great news… today we’re celebrating nearly 500 educators who have already secured this award! A hearty round of applause to the inaugural crew of NGPF Distinguished Educators below, whose plaques will soon be on their way!

Want to do even more with Certification Courses? We will forever recognize educators who go the extra mile by completing every single Certification Course, too!

Want to see your name among these honorees? Get started by signing up for your next Certification Course today!
