Certified Interpretive Guide Train-the-Trainer™ / Certified Interpretive Host Train-the-Trainer™
The Certified Interpretive Guide Train-the-Trainer course is a five-day course, which covers essentials for teaching the CIG curriculum as well as NAI’s policies and procedures. NAI aims to offer several of these workshops per year. Due to their popularity, we also try to schedule one in each NAI Region, every other year.
The Certified Interpretive Host Train-the-Trainer™ is either a four-day course or a two-day course, depending on if participants are already CIG Trainers or not. New trainers attend a four-day course to learn the essentials for teaching the CIH curriculum as well as NAI’s policies and procedures. Individuals who are current CIG Trainers attend a two-day course to add on the ability to teach the CIH curriculum. As this course is requested less frequently than the CIG Train-the-Trainer course, NAI will conduct this course wherever there may be demand and generally offers a couple of these courses per year.
Sites interested in hosting a course can contact NAI by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. To ensure a course will run, it is recommended that interested host sites solicit five individuals* interested in taking the course before contacting NAI. Host sites receive one free registration* in the course they are hosting in exchange for providing a meeting space for course participants, A/V equipment, and light refreshments each day of the course.
*In order to enroll in a Train-the-Trainer course, interested instructors must have taken the course they wish to teach: CIG or CIH, and already be a Certified Interpretive Trainer™ (CIT) with NAI.
