How can I align my content to IC3 certification? If you’ve asked yourself this question, you aren’t alone. We recently did a training session for business teachers in Pinellas County, Florida. Our product development manager, Ken, went through the normal routine of talking about the organization of modules, teacher resources, and management software features. At the end of the session, one of the teachers told us that she really would have like to hear more about best practices. Ken asked for some details and she explained that the IC3 certification was important for her students and that she would like more information. We gathered some material for the teacher and decided to share with everyone.
