I would like to get a proposal for the documentation side of it to be professionally fleshed out.
If I read correctly PEP1 would represent 1000 skills demonstrated by 1000 projects/tasks ?
Are all 1000 of these compiled in your mind at this time?
I was unable to find a post with a list though I can see how that may have been intentional too.
What would a PEP1 be able to accomplish having achieved the certification? What would a PEP* MASTER be able to do?
After earning your PEP1 we could drop you in the woods with a few supplies and come back in a year to find a a thriving site covered in beautiful systems
After this summer I will have 3 years teaching experience under my belt
It seems like more of list of "bragging rights" than a curriculum.
I'd run set two weeks (or however long is required) courses. Then have them themed, like...
"fire and cooking"
-solar oven (?)
-hot water systems
Have all the theory indoors. Class makes some designs. Have the class construct.
It'd also be great for experimenting.

When they have completed a sufficiency (perhaps 1000 of 1200 or 800 of 1000) they can apply, and schedule, and pay for, a PEP1 certification visit.

I tried sending you one. But something went wrong

To be honest this all seems like a metric crap tonne of teaching for one person.

"Anybody need a talented naturalist without a boat, an outstanding educator without a teaching cert, an accurate and energetic researcher without independent funding, or a blacksmith and leather worker born into the wrong century?
How about just a 35yo waiter?"
So... should I send him your way? ;P

In this thread I try to explain how I need somebody that can get a lot of work done without a lot of guidance from me.
In this thread I explore the difference between a level 2 person and a level 7 person. Naturally, for this position I would prefer a level 7 person, but would consider a level 2 person with plans on growing into a level 7 person.
