A NETA-certified teaching staff is the benchmark of quality in the enrichment industry.  Certification of your teaching staff can be accomplished with no direct cost to your organization.  Private enrichment companies, summer camps, YMCAs, private studios, PTA programs, day care centers, private and public schools, municipal enrichment programs, et al, all enjoy the benefits of increased public safety, heightened teacher competency and professionalism, and reduction of exposure to liability by having a NETA certified teaching staff.

There are two options by which you can get your teaching staff certified.
