    Certification Curriculum

    How do yo know if the course being offered is the new or old crriculum? I'm watching for courses for this fall but I don't know if it would be better to look for the new or the old curriculum. I would rather not learn something and then jst have to relearn stuff later. Any ideas?

    Re: Certification Curriculum

    I think curriculum is updated every few years or so & since you have to be re-certified bianually, I would say it doesn't matter too much -- especially since you frequent this board (you're starting out ahead of the game as it is!)

    I think the new curriculum is in effect this month and applies to all classes going forward basically, so you can't pick between old vs. new when signing up for a class. As Tiffany mentioned, hanging out here should give you a great head start and then some.
