TEACHER CERTIFICATION

The establishment of an Enrichment Teacher Certification program is one of our proudest achievements and we are currently training and certifying enrichment teachers throughout the nation.  If you are a NETA client and wish to sponsor the certification of members of your teaching staff, NETA can do so at a discounted rate of 15%.  NETA-certified enrichment teachers are well-versed in liability awareness, keep up-to-date on the latest trends in education and enrichment, are attentive to the needs of your program and will be a valuable asset to your team.

THE ENRICHMENT TEACHER’S COMPANION – First Edition

The Enrichment Teacher’s Companion is the preparatory material for the NETA Certification Exam and is the definitive text of the enrichment industry.  In its pages you will find information on effective teaching methods, various job opportunities, classroom management skills, legal liabilities, how to land teaching jobs and much more.  This book is a “must have” in the library of every serious enrichment teaching professional.

TEACHER CONTINUING EDUCATION

After successfully passing the NETA Certification Exam, teacher certification is valid for a period of two years from its date of issuance.  To maintain a NETA Certification, teachers must earn two (2.0) continuing education credits within that two year period.  There are a variety of continuing education courses NETA makes available to NETA-certified enrichment teachers, taught by experts in enrichment and other related fields – “Building a Client Base” and “Advanced Classroom Management”, just to name a few. The continuing education courses are designed to keep teachers on the vanguard of the enrichment industry by educating them about the latest developments in the profession – the newest laws, regulations, techniques, etc. and will give them the tools needed to be the most effective enrichment teachers in the industry.   

REGIONAL AND NATIONAL CONFERENCES

NETA’s regional and national conferences are a dynamic way for both enrichment teachers and enrichment program providers alike to network, exchange ideas, hear about new trends in funding, learn new tips and techniques, and stay on the cutting edge of what enrichment has to offer.  The conferences unite all aspects of enrichment through seminars, speakers, display booths and social opportunities that aid both teachers and program providers in advancing their careers.
