There's "Good News." And, there's "Bad News."
The "good news" is that online job opportunities for GPC’s are here! For the foreseeable future, webinars and Zoom meetings will be the way today’s workforce gets trained. GPC's who lean into online teaching as part of their tool kit will make more money than their colleagues and reach more people where they're at!
The "bad news" is that if you're like most grant professionals, you had little, if any, formal training before you got started in the grant profession.
Perhaps you, too, "fell into" the field or got started "purely by accident" like I did.
What do you do, then, when you're asked to volunteer or even get paid to teach an online class? You can't draw from your formal training, can you?
You probably draw from your own personal experience, right!
That's what I did! I told the story of my first grant. This story-telling revealed a simple 3-step "idea match" model that became a nexus of the Internet's 1st online course (1997), as well as my 2nd masters degree thesis and my 1st book (2003):
This 20-Hour Online Class Shows You Step-by-Step How to Tell Your Own Stories as Part of Your Teaching Toolkit!
You'll be encouraged to incorporate key GPC exam core competencies into your online classes as you discover how to shift from boring one-way, PowerPoint-driven webinars to more powerful, Zoom online classes with interactive breakout rooms!

Bette Hartnett, GPC
"The breakout group discussions were enjoyable and informative."
I really enjoyed the practice exam. It was extremely beneficial to be able to take it and receive my score so I had time to study my weak areas. The breakout group discussions were enjoyable and informative.
Leslie Colston, GPC
"... it helped to gel all participants' experiences with the expertise required..."
What surprised me the most about the GPC Exam Prep online course is it helped to gel all the participants' experiences with the expertise required to pass the exam.
Lisa Rene Smith, GPC
"... group participation, not just an instructor-led course."
It was my first experience in doing an online course. It was really helpful that it was a group participation, not just an instructor-led course.
