Pathfinder Director Certification.png



"This certification is authorized for use by those who have not yet become invested Master Guides. It is intended to provide a strong foundation for someone who has little if any prior experience with Pathfinders, but has been asked to serve as club director by their local church. Ideally the seminars should be taken before the new director actually takes up their duties. The field work would be done during their first year as a director, associate director or deputy director. This certification was approved by the NAD Pathfinder Committee in 2011 for piloting with action PA 2011.03 and in 2013 for adoption with action PA 2013.08."
