Online Training (including webinars during COVID-19)
Typical options for online learning are found in the links to the right (gray box). Links to events specific to supporting virtual learning are found below.
Please note that not all courses typically offered count for ESE points, and not all typical courses offered are eligible for inservice points. Review the PDA Portal Catalog document for specific information on course content and point eligibility. Review the "Independent Study on the PDA Portal for ESE Requirement" to determine which on-demand courses will count toward the requirement for 20 points in methods/strategies for teaching ESE students in every validity period.
