EEA offers certification in Environmental Education through the year-long ATEEG program, which entails three core courses, 30 hours of professional learning chosen by the candidate, and an independent study project, mentored by experts in the field.
K-12 teachers, non-formal educators, pre-service teachers, and college professors who are interested in honing their craft without committing to the certification program - or those who need professional learning hours to complete their ATEEG certification - are invited to check out a range of opportunities including conferences, short courses, and workshops.
EEA has vetted and curated a collection of resources for teaching environmental education. In addition, EEA offers a course on Excellence in EE Materials, which engages learners in evaluating, adapting and modifying ee materials.
