The National Mentor Training and Certification Program™ curriculum is strategically aligned to the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL). The 2019 edition of Leading Learning Communities: Pillars, Practices, and Priorities for Effective Principals serves as the guiding framework alongside NAESP’s mentor competencies.
Participants are awarded the National Mentor Certification upon successful completion of both parts of the program. The National Mentor Certification is valid for a period of 3 years and can be renewed through participation at a one-day recertification training session.
National Mentor Certification fulfills Bethel University, St. Paul, MN requirements for EDUC802 Leadership Evolution, three doctoral-level semester credits. Participants who wish to earn the graduate credits at zero tuition cost can apply to Bethel online to be a non-degree seeking, individual course student. There is a one-time $200 transcription fee. More information about Bethel’s Doctor of Education: Leadership in K-12 Administration program can be located at this website.
