Apple Teacher Certification for BPS Teachers

Billings Public Schools teachers, use the links on this page to apply for step up credit BEFORE completing Apple Teacher badges for iPad, Mac or Swift Playgrounds. The Apple Teacher certification program, developed by Apple, is a way for teachers to show their understanding of using Apple products for teaching and learning. After completing a series of badges for each topic (iPad, Mac and Swift Playgrounds), teachers will receive an Apple Teacher badge and recognition. Teachers will submit proof of badge completion and Apple Teacher designation to receive 2 hours of OPI credit for their work for each certification. If you have any questions, please email bpstis@billingsschools.org.
