Instructor Certification

CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATION


In September of 2016 the CBA Education Committee change the requirement for Instructor status. A blacksmith may become an instructor only after completing level II or III. An instructor must complete level II to teach level I and level III to teach level II. All current instructors are grandfathered in. The Instructor Certification is based upon demonstrated ability, interest and willingness to teach other blacksmiths. A prospective instructor receives his or her Instructor Certificate following completion of a Public Demonstration of a specific project, including a storyboard detailing the steps. Handouts describing the processes are encouraged, and should be provided to the California Blacksmith Magazine editor for publication. The demonstration project may be of the blacksmith’s own choosing although it is desirable that it be reviewed by the blacksmith’s instructor.

Note: An Instructor does not have to host/teach further classes - they are expected to be available and willing to help Beginner/Novice students. An instructor is expected to take Instructor refresher classes each year.
