Many people ask about certification, and why Babywearing Education Australia does not offer any.
Certification should be meaningful and recognised beyond the certifying agency. In Australia certification courses are offered through Tafe and other registered training organisations. There is oversight which means that acheiving a certificate I or II represents a similar level of engagement no matter the subject offered. Right now there is no recognised certification course in Babywearing education and support available.
At this time we feel it would be disingenuous to offer a certificate to those attending our classes. Instead we recognise the educators who attend workshops and classes and provide a statement of number of training hours completed.
If you have any questions about this or would like to discuss which class or workshop would best meet your needs please do not hesitate to contact us.
As always, we encourage all babywearing educators to seek out opportunities for growth an to explore all the options available to them.
