Paraprofessional Certification Survey

FLA is researching the possibility of beginning a Paraprofessional Certification Program.  FLA has created a task force of librarians and paraprofessionals to research and possibly create such a program.  With a UCF researcher and member of the task force, we have created a 12-question survey, for library paraprofessionals to measure interest.  We want to hear from you. Take 5-10 minutes to tell us what your expectations for such a program would be, let us now if you would be interested in being certified as a paraprofessional, and inform us of the barriers to participation in such a program.  

Please take the brief survey at http://ucf.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_24vTP0jm3cjp7oh.  Thank you!
