Courses listed by topic strand
General Course Information: All Special Education PD Series courses must offer a minimum of 67.5 PDPs to educators participating in and completing any Institute. Participants must attend and satisfactorily complete the entire Institute including the Institute project to be eligible for PDPs. There is no partial application of PDPs. There is no difference in work expectations for participants receiving PDPs and those receiving college credits. The course provider will also offer the option for individuals to receive three or more college credits from an affiliated Institution of Higher Education (IHE). Individual participants must pay for any costs for graduate credits. As always, individuals should always review their individual license requirements for their individual license renewals through the Office of Educator Licensure.
