The K-8 Professional Development Certificate is designed to assist those who are currently teacher aides or who are interested in becoming teacher aides to continue or begin course work that will assist them in their professional development and preparation. The courses provide content and skills that are immediately applicable in K-8 classrooms. This course work may be transferred into the Associate Arts Degree Program.
Some courses taken for the Professional Development Certificate may apply to the AA in Education. Courses marked with a * require a classroom practicum component. APU residency is required for the last 12 hours.
