Course Costs 

The costs of attending the course are: 
  • Workshop fee: $225 per workshop (lodging and meals included)
  • Course materials: Up to $90
  • Transportation: variable
 
Participants may significantly reduce the costs of attendance by: 
  • applying for a scholarship
  • seeking employer assistance with costs
  • sharing transportation to and from workshops, and
  • staying on site at workshops. 

 

Lodging and Meals

Lodging will be in shared rooms, with bunk beds in all workshops except Workshop 3, which will have twin beds. Meals will also be provided on-site, mostly prepared in on-site kitchens, with dietary restrictions taken into account. Costs of lodging and meals are included in the workshop registration fee (a change from previous years).

Participants are welcome to make their own arrangements, like staying in a hotel nearby and bringing their own food, but they will be responsible for the additional cost.

 

Course Materials

Students not already certified in the current Project WET, Project WILD, or Project Learning Tree guides will be required to order these books through KEEC. Each book costs $30 and contains EE lesson plans and activities that will be referenced throughout the course.
 

Code of Ethics 

In order to participate in the course, all applicants must sign the Code of Ethics, which includes the following statement:  
 
Standard 1.1.  The educator will clearly differentiate between education and advocacy when conducting EE programs, allowing students to decide for themselves where they stand on environmental issues.  The educator will refrain from making personal advocacy statements when teaching about environmental issues.
 
The full text of the Code of Ethics is included in the application form and available here. Applicants who have questions or concerns about the Code of Ethics should contact wesley.bullock@ky.gov.
