Online Course Enrollment closes June 1 or when 10 GPCs enroll. Don't miss out!
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, entered the grant profession by default or through the back door like Phil did.
What do you do, then, when you're asked to volunteer or even get paid to teach an online class?
You probably draw from your own personal experience, right!
That's what Phil did! He told the story of his first grant (1988). 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 his 2nd masters degree thesis (2001) and his 1st book (2003):
With This Certificate, Tell Your Own Stories as Part of Your Online Teacher Toolkit!
In addition, you'll be invited to incorporate your strengths along with GPCI 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.

About Your Instructor,
Phil Johncock, MA, MMs, GPC
Your instructor designed and taught the first grant writing online class on the Internet in 1997 that is still operating today! Phil designed the curriculum for and served as Grant Professor in the first 10-credit college grant writing certification program in the world that started in 2001 at Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Nevada. He founded the first online class in GPC Exam Prep in 2011. Phil trained and certified all teaching faculty as Webinar Facilitators. He authored Issues in Teaching and Learning About Grants (Journal of the GPA: Fall 2011). He has taught thousands of people to write winning grant proposals since 1993.
Here’s what people are saying about your instructor...
Co-Author of the Power of Living Genius
"... I have completed three books and an audio CD set ..."
Since I worked with Phil, I have completed three books and an audio CD set, all of which I had been putting off and not completing, as well as launching a new business and expanding my career exponentially. I can't tell you how valuable it is to learn how to complete things in your life. It has changed my life. I consider Phil to be a Genius Completer.
Founder and Director, Kinesiology Institute
"... now generating several hundred thousands of dollars per year..."
When I started getting mentoring from Phil Johncock, he pointed out that I was trading time for money, and was not doing very well at it on my way to bankruptcy. He helped me develop the courses I had been teaching into evergreen products, which are now generating several hundred thousands of dollars per year. About 20% of my income still comes from live events, trading time for money, but I'm turning them into evergreen products to generate ongoing residual income. Phil’s mentoring and support along the way has significantly contributed to my success.
