Certification of Audiovisual Personnel: The Second Nation-Wide Status Report.
Grady, William F.
Nation-wide surveys in 1968, 1970 and 1972 of the Association of Educational Communication and Technology's (AECT) Roster of Chief of State School Audiovisual Officers led to several conclusions. First, certification of audiovisual (AV) specialists has become more important: in 1968 only 17 states had or were preparing certification programs; in 1972 40 states had or were preparing certification programs. Second, a qualitative change in certification programs has begun, with states turning to the "unified" or combined "print/non-print" certificate. Finally the currently typical AV certificate requires a bachelor's degree, a valid teacher's certificate, two to three years teaching experience, 15 to 24 graduate credits in AV, and 12 to 21 graduate credits in related areas. (An appendix summarizes the educational requirements for each of the 22 states which now have certification programs.) (RH)
