Certification Process Changes

The CAEDHH Certification Committee together with the CAEDHH National Executive would like to draw your attention to changes to CAEDHH Certification which have now been implemented.

Effective September 2015, CAEDHH will no longer accept group applications.

Effective September 2013, Interim Certification has been eliminated.

Certification has now become a one step process whereby Interim and Permanent Certification are replaced with the new ‘CAEDHH Professional Certification’.

Graduates of a Teacher Training Program for Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, whose course work and practicum meet CAEDHH Certification Standards will be now be eligible to apply for CAEDHH Professional Certification without the previously required two years teaching experience.

The cost for the new CAEDHH Professional Certification is $75.00 for CAEDHH members and $125.00 for non-members.

Those who currently hold Permanent Certification need not reapply. Previously issued CAEDHH Permanent Certification stands for those who have applied in the past and who hold Permanent Certification.

Please feel free to be in touch with Dr. Joanna Cannon, CAEDHH Certification Committee Chair at joanna.cannon@ubc.ca with any questions you may have.
