I do some contracting and agree with you. However there isnt a website or place specifically for "freelance conservation work". most orgs post on regular job boards or their own. I think it would take a lot of time to get them to use one resource.

Very interested to hear more. 

Similar models are being used where NGOs train local people with transparancy as rangers or eco-guard groups. However Im wondering how you will have the donors involved as that is very tricky and must be careful of letting donors call the shots. . I have alot of experience in that area. 

Would love to hear who you're working with and how you're implementing this. Good luck! Great initiative!

Ive found when people work on a doc together they often either dont tell you where its saved, dont give you permission to edit it, or email a doc around. When its emailed it becomes an issue with many people adding their comments to the same document version and then emailing back several new versions w comments. This is difficult to go through and find all the comments and edit suggestions to make one final document.

Will we also have any review or "class time" or will we login simply to take the test?
