The cohousing professional certification program by Katie McCamant is its last 
steps of choosing candidates for this years class. I attended one of the 
webinars and was very impressed by the design of the program. Katie is the 
queen of cohousing so you know the information she imparts will be accurate and 
helpful. She has the widest experience of probably anyone in cohousing. 

But in addition to that the program is well conceived and fits into her long 
term goal of increasing the number of cohousing communities by increasing the 
number of cohousing professionals. It’s very much like the practical portion of 
graduate degrees in which students work with a mentor and meet in seminars to 
share information on their practicum whether that is a demonstration of 
professional level research or field project.

The program is designed for people who want to go beyond just finishing their 
own project. it’s for people who want to go on to develop other communities. 
Professionals are particularly needed in parts of the country without cohousing 
communities now.
