Meet the New Verified Global Canva Experts!
If you are here, I bet you are a keen Canva lover, and that you probably saw that Verified Global Canva Experts have officially been launched.
This post will discuss a bit about these “Canva Experts”, but I also want to hear from all you avid Canva users and content creators. At the end of the post, I want to learn more about your business and your hopes of becoming an Expert and the possibility of becoming “Canva Certified” (one day). OK?
First Let’s Talk Verified Canva Experts
Earlier this week, myself and two dozen others, were officially launched as the first batch of “Verified Global Canva Experts”. A landing page has been created (on Canva Websites, of course). After this announcement, many people were excited, a few were confused (especially by the name), and some were even angry. On Social Media, I saw a few complaints from people who have massive audiences, and felt they should be an Expert. (Perhaps so…but that may not be the way to go about it…It’s not just about having big audiences! I speak from experience!)
The majority of us were already existing Canva ambassadors (known as Canva Certified Creatives or CCCs) and had been for years. Not all of us have massive communities, and rightfully so.
It’s not just about having large communities, subscribers or making viral tutorials. It’s about ebodying Canva’s Values and the ability to teach the tool well, consistently. So the experience of the first batch of “Verified Global Canva Experts” is varied for sure. Some are killer Youtubers, Instagrammers or bloggers. Some of us train via “in person” workshops. We are all a “Force for Good” in our ways!
“How Do I Become a Verified Canva Expert?”
“Does Canva Have a Certification Process?”
Canva Certification is something I’ve wanted for many years now, and thus I hope it is something that happens eventually.
You can become Adobe Certified and Microsoft Certified so one day maybe you can become Canva Certified…Honestly though, I get why it’s a challenge from Canva’s perspective. Who would it be for? What would it entail? Would it be something that would be charged for? Is it a one off? Are there different modules? Etc.
What I want to know from you…
Before You Go…
