Experienced Educator Certification Packet
Experienced Educators have completed certification with another comprehensive childbirth education organization and have taught at least three series, each lasting 16 hours or more.
- Develop and submit the outlines for your class series: An Outline Topic Checklist will be included with your packet; make sure all the topics on the checklist are included in your series. You have freedom to design your classes in the order you prefer (or use the outlines from the samples we have available in our forums).Eight to twelve classes and 24 hours are standard although a minimum of six classes and twenty hours are required
- Complete two written Perspective Exercises.
- Complete the Birth Experience requirement: Experience with the normal process of birth is an important part of the teacher preparation process. Educators must have given birth at least once or have observed at least one birth. If possible, we recommend that you submit births completed without pain medication, but medicated or surgical births are accepted.
