    2021 Environmental Educator Certification Program (EECP)

    The Environmental Educator Certification Program (EECP) draws together stewards and educators of the environment into a structured and effective initiative. Certification is a public declaration that a certain individual meets a stringent level of requirements and has a specific set of skills. This program benefits practitioners and organizations alike, extending to individuals, the public, and the profession itself. Having the EECP enhances the legitimacy of the field by building a uniform foundation in effectively teaching about the environment in California. 

    Through participating in the certification program, you will increase your knowledge and skills, expand your professional network, enhance your resume, and make important connections across the state.  

    Cohort meetings will be offered on the following days/times:

    MONDAY COHORT: 3rd Monday of the month from 7-8:30 PM

    TUESDAY COHORT: 3rd Tuesday of the month from 4-5:30 PM

    Do not enroll in this program if you cannot attend one of the cohort meetings. 

    Small group meetings with a program mentor will be offered at a variety of times/days and will be scheduled after the program begins.

    Participants may only enroll in EECP if they have been accepted into the program and have paid the $25 application fee. If this applies to you, check your inbox, as you will need the code in order to enroll.
