Another great class!  I now have a lesson that I can immediately take back to my class and use.  The best part is, I can modify this lesson and it use in different curricular areas for my first graders!  Thanks again!

Self-Paced

Our training system was build with the understanding that your time is extremely valuable. That’s why the courses were developed to be completed on your own schedule and at your own pace. You can also take as long as you need to complete a course and you don’t need to complete one course before starting another one. After you complete a course, you still have access to all the course materials so you can review the training material as many times as needed.

This is the first time I have completed one of these courses and it was absolutely fantastic! Being able to go online, work at my own pace and more importantly not spend an absolute fortune has been a godsend and I’ll definitely be taking part in more of these courses. I’ll definitely be recommending this to others!

Course Credit

Upon course completion, teachers may request a certificate of completion that can be used for continuing education credit. Our courses are divided into three levels to provide teachers with a learning path that’s easy to follow and easy to monitor. Each level contains seven short courses that can be completed in two hours or less. Combined, each level contains 30 hours of instructions which is equivalent to 1 University credit.

Regardless of the project, I always learn something I can use in my classroom. Isn’t that what every teacher wants from professional development?
