'eeCredentials' is short for environmental education micro-credentials.

What is a micro-credential?

Micro-credentials are a competency-based digital form of certification. They can be issued for formal and informal professional learning experiences that support educators developing skills and acquiring knowledge to improve professional practice that supports student success.


Educators identify a competency they want to develop, submit evidence that they have mastered the competency, and receive official recognition.

Drawing a Straight Line

KACEE has developed online eeCredentials (micro-credentials) for Kansas formal and non-formal educators.


eeCredentials offer the opportunity—online and on your time—to learn how to implement environmental education into your classroom or learning experience.

Complete eeCredentials in Kansas Green Schools (KGS); Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (JEDIA); Project WET; Project WILD; Project Learning Tree (PLT); and more.

NOTE:  Select eeCredentials will be offered for graduate credit through Baker University. 


The Professional Environmental Educator Credential will also be offered through Pittsburg State University (PSU) for undergrad and graduate micro-certificates. 

The Framework:
Credentials, Courses, and Modules

Customizable, Adaptable, Flexible

  • eeCourses can stand alone 


  • eeCourses can be combined together to form an eeCredential (this can be pre-prescribed or custom - to individualize instruction)

  • eeCourses can be asynchronous, synchronous or a combination of the two and independent or cohort or a combination of the two, and all virtual or hybrid.
