CTE or P-3 Endorsement seekers ARE NOT ELIGIBLE for this course. Please consult the NJDOE's endorsement codes(link is external) to help you determine your eligibility for our program.

The purpose of this course is to help candidates seeking to upgrade from a 24-Hour Certificate to a 50-hour certificate.  This course is conducted as a laboratory course under the supervision of the CE-provider program.  Candidates must deliver a planned lesson using required template; submit a lesson reflection form provided by our program; and complete an interactive field experience log.  Requests for certificate upgrades are reviewed on an ongoing-basis, and candidates may enroll at anytime.

Candidates must pay a nominal $25 upgrade fee which defrays the cost of reviewing submissions and issuing the initial Verification of Program Completion form.
