Teacher Certification

Program Description:

As Children of the Earth Foundation grows we have a great need for more Instructors across the country. This course will be tailored to certify Instructors to lead weekend and day programs for COTEF. Everything from how to present the skills to youth to registration, administration, logistics and leadership will be covered and participants will be certified through COTEF to run programs. If you want to be part of bringing Grandfather’s teachings to your community, this is the class for you!

Ages and Prerequisites: Adults 18 and up

This program is designed for adults who have experience in wilderness survival and a desire to teach. Please note, during the program we will utilize primitive skills such as the bow drill but the course is not designed to teach the participants bow drill, but how to teach it. The expectation is that adults have some experience through Children of the Earth Foundation, Tracker School or experience from another source prior to attending.
