Renaissance Modules

The Renaissance Program, developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association, offers basic training and continuing education opportunities in several specific areas useful to professional religious educators. Each module consists of 15 hours of training in theory and practice. There are nine Renaissance Modules, which may be taken in any order. Renaissance Modules are part of the credentialing process for professional UU religious educators. Lay leaders serving on Religious Education committees or otherwise involved in RE programming in their congregations may also attend Renaissance Modules.

Our fee of $300 typically includes training, room, and board. An a exception to this is when the training is offered at a commercial hotel to accommodate an add-on module to the annual spring NARL conference. In this case, you will be responsible for your own overnight accommodations and some meals. Participants are responsible for acquiring their own texts and recommended readings. 


  • Cancellation prior to the registration deadline will be subject to a $25 handling fee.
  • Cancellations made after the registration deadline but a week or more before the training will be subject to a $150 fee, unless a replacement is arranged, in which case a $25 handling fee still applies.
  • Refunds for cancellations made within the week prior to the training will be given only under extreme circumstances and at the discretion of the regional staff.
