Delivery Mode+

We’d strongly encourage training camp participants to complete the self-directed learning module before joining the camp so that you can gain the best learning outcomes by attending the camp.

  • Self-directed learning module before the camp: this self-directed online review activity consists of approximately 15 hours of materials that a BEC camp participant is expected to review and complete before the camp. You can complete this self-directed module at your own pace. This self-directed module is designed to allow you to learn/review key Blue concepts that certified Blue Administrators are expected to be familiar with such as questionnaire logic and selection, survey date control, and relational demographics, along with practice exercises to apply these concepts in creating a Blue project. This self-direct module must be completed prior to the in-person camp, to ensure that you will be ready to fully participate in and complete the training camp with Blue Expert Certification. The instructor will work with you to plan and finish the self-directed module before the in-person camp.
  • In-person camp: this in-person camp consists of approximately 24 hours of learning activities, including a certification activity. It offers hands-on participation and training required to be certified as a Blue Expert. Upon finishing the certification activity at the end of the camp, you will receive your Blue Expert Certificate.
