This summer, North Carolina Business Committee for Education (NCBCE) is partnering with Epic to provide 40 hours of professional development and support for 100 NC teachers. They will have 4 in-person regional sessions for 8 hours followed by virtual sessions and coaching. Teachers must go through an application process for the program, and the ones that attend the May 24th meeting will get the first chance to apply. NCBCE is excited to provide this incredible PD opportunity to NC teachers.
For any NC PSU Staff who need CEU credits, DTL now has a database of all current asynchronous NCEES PD opportunities for staff. Refer to the flyer to find the PD that you need. Listing includes free DPI courses published in NCEES and a resource for retired or on-leave staff currently not active in NCEES.
Looking for DLCs? Courses are also sorted by credit type. Note: The acquiring of CEUs and contact hours is subject to LEA/Charter approval. Staff should follow local guidelines on pre-approvals, completed course approvals or requests to apply for approval of a different credit type on completed PD.
