The process for catechist certification in the Archdiocese of Atlanta is contained in the document Communicating the Catholic Message. Catechist certification builds competency in four dimensions: Catechist, Theology, Learner and Methods. The certification hour requirements for parish catechists and Catholic school teachers are different, however, both build competency in the four key dimensions.
