Additional Event Details

Ozark Natural Science Center (ONSC), in partnership with the National Association for Interpretation (NAI), is offering a training course for individuals in the field of interpretation. It is designed for individuals who deliver interpretive programs or have contact with the public at interpretive sites. There are two options for this course. Option one: Take the course without obtaining certification. Option two: Take the course and add certification as a Certified Interpretive Guide (CIG). You will pay an additional fee for certification and you must complete an open book Core Literature Review exam. The nationally recognized Certified Interpretive Guide (CIG) program combines the theoretical foundations of the profession with practical strategies in delivering quality interpretative programming to visitors. This 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). ONSC is offering a special rate for lodging and meals for Thursday night, September 26 through Monday afternoon, September 30. CIG participants will have a private room with bathroom and shower.
