Instructor Certification Program

The Instructor Certification Program (ICP) is designed to help instructors build a positive learning environment for a broad spectrum of CIP students using a wide array of contemporary media and teaching approaches.

It is intended for existing and experienced instructors who are looking to upgrade their skills and are seeking out theory and structure that will complement their existing skills. View a list of certified instructors.

ICP consists of four courses, each of which is three months long. The certification can be completed in just over a year. Courses address how people learn; instructional design; evaluation of CIP student progress, and virtual and in-class content delivery.

  • Course One: Teaching and Learning: Theory and Principle
  • Course Two: Instructional Design Principles
  • Course Three: Evaluation—Strategies for Success
  • Course Four: The Art of Facilitation

The course work amounts to roughly two hours each week, allowing the greatest possible scheduling flexibility for instructors.
