> 1. How long is the turnaround on a Blender Certification? In other words, how long until they get back to me after I submit an application?

It varies but it can be as short as a couple of days. If the
certification committee is asleep at the wheel (it's been known to
happen) it can get drawn out, but that doesn't happen much. I think
we're getting quicker with it.

> 2. Can I re-apply should my first portfolio/resume not be up to par with their standards?

Yes. If your submission isn't up to scratch we'll give you detailed
reasons why and you can resubmit as soon as you like.

> 3. Can I teach basic/introductory courses without?a certification? I don't mean skill-wise, but more in the legal sense. I'd rather not step on Blender's toes, as I am a huge fan of their work.

Absolutely. Certification is entirely voluntary and optional, although
of course we encourage it.

> 4. Is there anything I need to know outside what Blender and other trainers have shared? Is there any information not?on the Blender page that I might find useful to teach such classes?

Neal Hirsig's Blender course is a great reference.


Blendernation often reports on courses, books, tutorials, and other
resources that are valuable for Blender trainers, so I'd keep an eye
on that.

Hope this was helpful.
