SFG Instructor Certification Courses now available!

Post  sfgteachers on 1/15/2015, 9:27 am

As a Certified Square Foot Gardening Instructor, you will earn the credential to share this life changing method to your community and abroad. Our instructors teach SFG in their local schools, garden centers and nurseries, churches, clubs and some in remote parts of the world. Entrepenuers have used the certification to start a gardening business of their own. http://www.squarefootgardening.com/teach/online-square-foot-gardening-instructor-certification-course/

Thanks for bringing this back.

The presentation on the web site is a little confusing, to say the least. The front page link takes us to a page that says we need to do online courses 101 and 201 first, but there is no link to them. Doing a search for one brought it up, but not the other.

It also brought up yet a fourth course -- first we have the $99 main course, then find out afterwards we need prereq's 101 and 201, and on 201's page I found a link to a $149 course. My first guess was it's a package deal of all the three I mentioned, but no ... it's not. It's all just a little bit disorganized and confusing. Even the links on the page to other products are to unrelated things like irrigation systems.

It would be nice if there were a dedicated page to all the certification classes and processes, to give a little friendly structure and cohesion to it all for the curious reader. I would guess that a clean presentation would be much more likely to sell the courses, as well.

I do believe the TEACH tab on the homepage takes you to all certification offerings

Great. It would be nice if there was a link to it on the page for each individual course. The less guesswork, the less intimidating the whole process!

If I understand correctly, in order to take the Certified Instructor class, you have to take 101 and then 102.

101 and 201(not 102), unless I am misunderstanding.

And there are two types of certification, the more expensive one with a live component and the less expensive one that can all be done completely solo, both requiring 101 and 201.
