For those of you who missed it in the flurry of the 2018 CC Summit announcements, we opened registration for the official CC Certificate last month. The CC Certificate is a training course on Creative Commons licenses, open practices and the ethos of the Commons. We launched the CC Certificate as a way to invest in advocates in open movements – to build and strengthen their open licensing expertise. Find out more here. Our first round of classes in July are already sold out, but we still have space in our October classes. We’re working on outreach, translation, scholarships, and Certificate Instructor training courses, so watch for more announcements!
While these updates and advancements are exciting, we recognize the need for this program to grow quickly to meet demand. We plan to iterate on the Certificate offerings, regularly assessing content and process to better meet your priorities. We welcome your input!
