Bob Vajgrt, EUA’s Learning Studio Director, recently received the Accredited Learning Environments Planner (ALEP) designation, a mark of excellence developed to reflect the knowledge, skills and abilities of a competent educational facility planner. The ALEP credential was designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance and identify those in the educational environment industry who demonstrate the knowledge essential to the practice of educational facility planning.
The Association for Learning Environments (A4LE, formerly known as CEFPI), creator of the ALEP credential, observed that “An individual who has been certified by A4LE has achieved the highest qualification in our profession. Clients can appoint ALEPs with confidence that they have been examined for competence by our association.”
After meeting eligibility requirements and submitting an application, ALEP candidates must pass a rigorous CEFP exam. Once a candidate has earned the credential, they must maintain it by fulfilling certification renewal requirements every three years, in addition to maintaining minimum continuing education units each year.
“I have learned so much from the A4LE and am thrilled to have achieved this accreditation. I enjoy continuing to elevate the potential students, teachers and staff who learn and work within EUA designed facilities. I believe that this designation will help me to continue to improve learning environments as well as challenge my team at EUA,” Bob Vajgrt stated.
