The MNCH, in partnership with the National Association for Interpretation, is proud to offer a Certified Interpretive Guide (CIG) training this spring! The nationally recognized CIG program is designed for anyone in the interpretive field. Whether you’re a new hire, a professional looking to refresh your skills, or beginning a second career, this course will aid you in improving your presentation techniques. The 32-hour course includes:

  • The history, definition, and principles of interpretation
  • Techniques on how to make your programs purposeful, enjoyable, relevant, organized, and thematic
  • How to use tangible objects to connect your audience to intangible ideas and universal concepts
  • The 3 certification requirements needed to obtain a CIG (open book CORE Literature Review exam, program outline, and 10 minute interpretive presentation)

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Register online with the National Association for Interpretation, or download the CIG flier to learn more.

Registration Cost: $230 (Certification is an additional $150)
