About the Program
The Pennsylvania Association of Environmental Educators administers a professional certification program to recognize the qualifications that are essential for success in the field of environmental education.
As a 'PA Certified Environmental Educator', you hold a credential that demonstrates a deep understanding of the knowledge, skills and qualities needed to deliver exceptional environmental education programs.
The EE Certification program is largely self-guided (with oversight from our committee) and takes approximately 3 years to complete. Our goal is that the certification will be respected and recognized by employers, audiences and funders throughout the region.
