We've been working on this new project for months. Actually, it has been nearly a year!!!!! We've been listening to instructors, educators and stores all over the world and one thing we hear over and over again is that you want an educator program.


Guess what?

We did it!

Introducing the 
Zutter Certified Instructor 

Our design and product experts have developed this course based on years of teaching Zutter products, tools, and techniques to customers both in-person and online. You will receive instruction on all Zutter tools and products, as well as marketing tips and materials, plus we'll create several projects in the course that can be used to develop your own unique Zutter class offerings. 

In addition, Certified Instructors will receive a certificate in class, be offered discounts on supplies and tools for teaching, be listed on the Bind-It-All blog, be referred to retailers requesting classes, and receive on-going support from our Education Coordinator and Regional Certification Instructors. At the end of the course, you will earn your certificate by demonstrating the techniques learned during the course practicum. 

We're launching this program at CHA in Chicago this summer with very limited seating. We want your certification as an instructor to be a unique and special qualification you can offer your retail stores and customers so with that in mind, we are limiting the number of certifications that will be presented. 

The course will be held at the Donald E. Stevens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL on July 15, 2012. 

To request an application, please email your resume, a brief summary about your teaching experience, blog link, name, and address to 

Applications will be reviewed and approved as received, on a first-come, first-served basis. A fee schedule will be sent to you with your application. Travel arrangement and hotel accommodations are not provided. Please direct all questions to

We are very excited to be able to offer this opportunity for instructors and designers and look forward to seeing you in Rosemont!

Thank you!!!!!!!!
