NBCA Professional Christian Educator Certification Program
Professional Christian Educator Certification Program
The National Bible College Association recognizes and endorses those who maintain high standard in Christian Education. It is our goal to certify those who serve as Professional Educators in the field of religious academia, and to bestow upon them recognized, professional certification as such.
In recognition of the above, NBCA has established a Professional Educators Certification, which may only be obtained by the Faculty and Administrative Staff of a member NAPTI institution. The obvious question is, “How does NBCA Professional Christian Educators Certification assist me in my goals as an educator?” The answer is quite simply this…It proclaims the recipient’s recognition of having met the required standards of the association. In addition, it validates the recipient’s position as a qualified and certified educator, under the auspices of the member institution and certified by the association.
NBCA certifies and credentials the following as Professional Educators:
All member institutions are required to Certify their Instructors, Teachers, Adjunct Faculty, Professors and Administrative Staff through the NBCA’s peer recognized Professional Educators Certification.
