While training is important, we at Great Lakes Waldorf Institute (GLWI) want to honor and acknowledge your years of classroom teaching experience as well as any training you may have already completed as we help you work toward your Waldorf Teaching Certificate of Completion. With these goals in mind, we offer a Certificate Completion Program (CCP) for active teachers without a formal Waldorf training credential who wish to earn an AWSNA affiliated certificate of completion.


The nature of this program is extremely individualized and will vary from teacher to teacher depending on previous experience and training. In order to learn how the program can be individualized for you, request a review of the credits you may have earned through another training institute as well as an evaluation of experience through a demonstration of mastery in specific subject areas as a result of previous teaching experience.

The review fee for this comprehensive evaluation is $50. Once the review is complete, GLWI will be able to recommend a specific course of study designed to support you as you move toward completion of your certificate. In a conversation with the Program Director, you will be able to discuss and finalize course selection and gain clarification about how our program will not only draw from but also enhance your classroom practice and experiences.
