Certified Teachers Program
About the Program
The National Quilting Association, Inc. (NQA) has established The Teacher's Certification program to certify teachers of basic quiltmaking.
To be certified, you must demonstrate and be evaluated on your own quiltmaking skills as well as your ability to teach the basic skills of quiltmaking: piecing, appliqué, quilting, and quilt finishing. You must be able to perform each skill by hand and by machine. To become a candidate for certification, you must submit your teaching resumé as well as:
- a list of teaching objectives,
- an outline,
- lesson plans,
- and examples of teaching aids to be used for your basic course.
The Program is open to NQA members worldwide.
The fee for candidates in the United States is $80.00. For non-US residents it is $95.00. This money is used to defray the cost of printing, postage, and other certification expenses.
