About this Course
The nationally recognized Certified Interpretive Host (CIH) program is designed for anyone who wants to enhance their customer service skills and learn how to turn informal interactions with visitors into interpretive opportunities. This course will introduce you to the history, definitions, and principles of interpretation. During the course, you will assess host-visitor interactions and leave ready to make positive first impressions that support the mission of your organization.
There are two options for this course.
Option one: take the course without obtaining the CIH certificate.
Option two: take the course and add the certificate as a Certified Interpretive Host (CIH). You will pay an additional fee for the certificate. The CIH comes with a complimentary one year membership. If you are already a member of NAI we will add your complimentary membership onto the end of your current membership.
$120; the certificate is an additional $165
