After completing the MEE course, can I say I am certified by Mindful Schools?
Mindful Educator Essentials provides training in teaching the Mindful Schools curriculum, but is not a certification in teaching mindfulness.
You will receive a certificate of completion for each course you complete with Mindful Schools. When speaking to parents, teachers, or administrators you may use any of the following language to represent your training in mindfulness through our Mindful Educator Essentials course:
- "I have completed the Mindful Schools Mindful Educator Essentials."
- "I have been trained in the Mindful Schools Curriculum."
- "I have been trained by Mindful Schools to teach mindfulness to students in K-12."
If you are interested to learn more about professional development certification for our courses, please see our support articles on professional credits.
Can I teach mindfulness to adults after completing the MEE course?
MEE offers training to teach mindfulness to youth and children. The course is not designed to equip graduates with the skills to teach mindfulness to adults, which requires a distinct skill-set and entails additional training.
Can I train others to teach mindfulness after completing the MEE course?
No. The Mindful Educator Essentials course is not a train-the-trainer program, so you are not authorized to train other adults in how to teach mindfulness to children and adolescents.
If you have colleagues, administrators or others in your school community who are interested in learning about mindfulness, we encourage you to refer them to our courses.
