These courses offer real take-aways that can be used to improve your teaching and the hours can be put towards licensure renewal.

Some of the short courses are instructor guided and some are designed without an instructor. Certificates of completion are emailed upon completion of each course. CEU Credit/s are available with any of the courses that we offer that are 10 hours or more. Learn more here. Costs start as low as $19 (Webinar) and $49 (Short PD courses) and you can pay with a credit card or a Purchase Order (must receive check first). [email protected]
