Elective Credit Overview
Each student seeking Level One Certificate must successfully complete 20 contact hours of elective credit. Ten of those hours must be completed at EAFI.**
Each student seeking Level Two Certificate must successfully complete 20 contact hours of elective credit. Ten of those hours must be completed at EAFI. **(This requirement is in addition to the 20 hours of elective credit already required for Level One).
*EAFI will publish a list of upcoming courses offered at EAFI that qualify for elective credit.
*EAFI advisor will work with each student to assist them in selecting their elective credit hours to match their interests, and/or to personalize their training program in a way that fills any “gaps” in their prior education and/or training. (For example, a student with no background in human development may be directed toward an elective course in that subject).
*Except for the 10 hours (per level) that each student must acquire through EAFI, students may choose to seek their elective credits in their home communities or elsewhere.
*Students must get approval from their EAFI mentor/advisor before choosing an off-site elective course.
*Confirmation, from instructor, of successful course completion will be necessary for awarding elective credits.
*Students will be required to submit a summary of their experience and learning for each elective course.
**Out-of-state and international students may request permission to obtain ALL elective credit in their own community.
