Continuing Professional Education
Beginning July 1, 2000, Act 48 of 1999 required persons holding Pennsylvania professional educator certification to complete continuing education requirements every five years in order to maintain their certificates as active. The MCIU offers a variety of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) courses for either CPE credit or graduate credit through partnering universities. MCIU CPE courses are PDE approved and can be used towards Level II certification. CPE courses provide practical skills and information that promote professional growth. Course offerings are open to all school personnel from Montgomery County and surrounding areas.
Through a collaborative agreement with the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit certain Continuing Professional Education (CPE) courses facilitated through the MCIU are offered for graduate credit. You should verify with your employer which type of credit is required for pay scale movement.
