The Eastern Sierra Interpretative Association (ESIA) will be holding a National Association for Interpretation (NAI) Certified Training on January 22-25, 2024.
The class will be held at the White Mountain Research Station, 3000 E Line St, Bishop. The sessions will be held each day from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The NAI Certification program is intended to help people new in the field demonstrate they have what it takes to make interpretation their career and help experienced interpreters demonstrate they have gained the experience, collected knowledge, skills, and abilities that make them accomplished professionals in their field.
Interpreters connect visitors to important natural, cultural, and historical resources at parks, nature centers, historical sites, aquariums, zoos, and anywhere people come to learn about a place. Interpretation is defined as a purposeful approach to communication that facilitates meaningful, relevant, and inclusive experiences that deepen understanding, broaden perspectives, and inspire engagement with the world around us.
The National Association for Interpretation (NAI) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit professional organization dedicated to advancing the profession of heritage interpretation, currently serving about 6,000 members in the United States, Canada, and over thirty other nations.
