RStudio Instructor Training Updates

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.rstudio.com/blog/2019-05-21-instructor-training-updates


There has been a lot of interest in RStudio’s instructor training and certification program since it was announced in February. People are now going through the training course and the subsequent exams, so we’d like to share a bit more information about them.
What’s the big picture? In order to be certified, candidates must do a one-day training course on modern evidence-based teaching techniques, write a 90-minute exam on that material, and complete a technical exam on each of the topics they are certifying for.
