Are you looking for training that combines non-formal interpretation skills with customer service? Do you want to train/certify staff and others on behalf of NAI? If so, this course is for you! Course prerequisite: CIG/CIH certificate or already certified as a CIT. See more below.
This course has two different tracks for attendance and certification.
- For individuals who are not current Certified Interpretive Trainers (CIT) with NAI, a virtual course of six days will be held January 25 - February 1, 2023 (see below for full schedule). You will learn how NAI teaches interpretation, what is expected for Certified Interpretive Host (CIH) certification and will complete two requirements for becoming a CIT.
- For individuals who are already certified as a CIT and are fully sanctioned as a CIG instructor (CIGT), attendance is required January 26 - 31, 2023. Once you take the class, 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.
