Washington, DC August 1, 2016 Jack Shea recently received the Accredited Learning Environments Planner (ALEP) Designation. Jack has 35 years of experience in education and this new accreditation is a mark of excellence which reflects his knowledge, skills, and abilities as an exceptional educational facility planner. The ALEP credential was designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance, and signify professionals as experts in their field.

The ALEP credential was developed by the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE, formerly known as CEFPI). According to A4LE, those who receive the ALEP credential represent the “highest qualification in our profession.” They go on to say that “Clients can appoint ALEPs with confidence that they have been examined for competence.”

Candidates must meet eligibility requirements and submit an application before passing a rigorous accreditation exam. Once earned, the credential must be renewed every three years by fulfilling requirements such as completing continuing education units.

The A4LE is the only professional organization whose principal focus is improving the places where children learn. Their accreditation is a glowing affirmation of Jack’s knowledge, work, and commitment to education.
