The certification program sets specific standards of knowledge, skills, and experience that highly qualified Environmental Educators in Arizona should be able to demonstrate. It is a competency based program - one where the applicant will demonstrate what they know and can do by building an online portfolio. The competencies for Certification are based on the NAAEE Guidelines for Excellence in Environmental Education and Arizona's Framework for Environmental Concepts and Themes (AFECT). It is recognized by the North American Association for Environmental Education as a valid certification program (www.naaee.org/our-work/programs/certification). Our team is working with other Affiliates on developing an accreditation program for the North American Association.
This course is a work-at-your-own-pace, portfolio building course. You will be connected to a reviewer who will work with you one-on-one. Note that this is NOT a facilitated online course, with active discussion and engagement with your cohort members, although you can certainly connect with other members in your group in the online platform throughout the year.
There will be three cohorts in 2017. Availability will be limited to the number of reviewers available for each cohort. Please indicate your cohort preference and AAEE will attempt to place you in your preferred cohort, but preferred cohorts are not guaranteed. The cost is $250. Again, it is a year-long, online, independent, portfolio building process where participants work one-on-one with mentors to become certified.
