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. If no links are visible, that means events have already happened. Check back to this page for future advertisements of events to support virtual learning.
Facilitated PDA courses will also be advertised here when registration periods are open. If no link to facilitated PDA courses appears on this page, it means the courses have already started. Watch this page for future advertisements for Winter and Spring course offerings. 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.
Independent Study courses are available 24-7 on the BEESS PD Portal, www.fl-pda.org. Click on the INDEPENDENT STUDY link, complete the demographic information requested, and then the listing of courses available will appear. Please review the "Independent Study on the PDA Portal for ESE Requirement" document, in the gray box to the right, 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.
