Each spring, we proudly offer our Certified Interpretive Guide training in partnership with the National Association for Interpretation (NAI). The training focuses on planning and presenting programs at museums, nature centers, parks, zoos, and other interpretive sites. It also provides powerful communication tools for teachers, law/code enforcement officers, librarians, and anyone who works with members of the public to capture attention, explain a resource or idea, and inspire positive action.
The nationally recognized Certified Interpretive Guide (CIG) program is designed for anyone in the interpretive field. Whether you’re a new hire, a professional looking to refresh your skills, or beginning a second career, this course will aid you in improving your presentation techniques. The course covers the theoretical foundations of the profession with practical strategies for delivering quality interpretive programs.

The spring 2020 CIG course was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Check back in the coming months for announcements about our next training.
