Professional Learning Units

Teachers who require professional learning units to maintain statewide teaching certification may receive PLUs for the successful completion of the program. A course record is issued to principals, schools or school districts upon completion of the program to verify participation. The course record can be submitted by participants to their states for professional development units, pending evaluation and approval. One PLU is earned for every 10 contact hours of classroom instruction. No college credit is earned. The weeklong session includes a minimum of 20 contact hours of instruction, equivalent to 2 SDUs or PLUs*.

* A course record containing the number of instructional hours is provided to participants following the successful completion of each workshop. This record can be submitted to the applicable state for professional development units pending evaluation and approval.
