In spring 2020, we'll proudly offer our third annual 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 will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24 through Friday, March 27 at the museum. Space is limited and preregistration is required. Register now.  

The course fee is $380 ($355 for students) and covers instruction, materials, certification, and a one-year membership to NAI. You may take the course without the optional certification for $230.
