Summer 2020 WEA National Board Jump Start: Online

WEA's National Board Jump Start is a comprehensive, multi-day seminar designed to provide National Board candidates with important information about the certification process, time to examine component and Assessment Center requirements, the opportunity to plan how to meet requirements, and time to collaborate, gather resources and information needed to pursue certification. All this happens in a supportive, constructive and collegial environment.

This summer, Jump Start will take place fully online!


  • Registration is $50 and open to WEA members only. Foundations 1 is a required entry course.
  • Select as many of the remaining 5 modules (C1, C2, C3, C4, Foundations 2) as you like for the flat $50 registration fee.
