Environmental Education Program Directors

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Some employers may require education program directors to be licensed educators. Public schools typically require education staff to have bachelor's degrees and teaching licenses issued by state boards of education. Licensure requirements vary by state, but generally require individuals to have undergraduate degrees, to have completed approved teacher training programs, and to have practiced teaching while under supervision by an experienced educator. Private schools do not require licensure. Teachers can also receive voluntary certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (http://www.nbpts.org).
