Due to the hands-on nature of this course, we will only offer two levels of certification.
Certificate of Accomplishment
Participants working toward a Certificate of Accomplishment should expect to spend about 30 hours on class work, including attending all four live sessions (live or through recordings), participating in class forum discussions, and completing assigned tasks. At the end of the course, participants will submit a portfolio of materials created during the course. Participants will earn 30 professional development hours upon successful completion of certificate requirements.
Certificate of Distinction
Participants opting for additional mentoring with a Certificate of Distinction will receive professional feedback and guidance on polishing one or more of the materials created during the course with a goal of publication. They will also receive personal advice for how to continue their path towards becoming a materials writer within their particular context. Mentoring will continue for a further 2 weeks after the end of the course. Participants will earn 40 professional development hours upon successful completion of certificate requirements.
