CIG Train-the-Trainers Course

April 24-28, 2023
Government House and Edwardian Gardens
4607 Dewdney Avenue
Regina, SK, Canada S4T 1B7
Instructor: Jane Beattie

The CIG Train-the-Trainers (formerly CIT) workshop is designed to improve your skills as a trainer using NAI's Certified Interpretive Guide (CIG) curriculum. Once you take the class and pass the credential requirements for CIT, you can use NAI's curriculum and certify staff and volunteers at your own site or serve as a contractor to sites without a trainer on staff. This workshop is required for those who want to teach the CIG curriculum. 

Participants to this course must have previously taken the CIG course and become certified or have the CHI certification. If you do not have these certifications, but would still like to be considered based on your experience, please contact Kat Jackson at

During the first two days of the workshop, we'll provide an annotated instructor's version of the CIG course. Then we move on to material that helps you become a better facilitator and evaluator. You will evaluate CIG students through watching videotaped presentations. We also provide a detailed orientation to the paperwork requirements for CIG instructors. On the last day, you'll present a 20-minute training segment that is videotaped.

Because this workshop is designed for those wanting to teach the CIG curricula, participants must be eligible for certification at the professional CIT level. Evidence of eligibility must be provided in the form of a transcript (not diploma) from a four-year degree program related to interpretation or a letter from a supervisor indicating at least four years of work experience in the field or a personal self-employment affidavit.
