In order to teach any classes at a Michaels store you need to be certified through EK Success, what used to be the SDU classes, now the Spotted Canary School. I sent a message to those in charge at EK Success to see if I really did need to take these classes. I was a little shocked to find out that indeed, I did need to take the classes.
So I did. It took nearly 6 hours of online classes. I got my certificate in the mail today as well as the class handbook that all students get when they take the classes. I am listed as a contributer of the book as it is riddled with my designs.
But...Yay!! Now I can teach at Michaels! lol
