Accepted in all 50 States
Most districts and states require that continuing education courses be (1) at a graduate level and (2) from a regionally accredited university. TPAI courses (all of which run through CSU-Pueblo) meet both of these requirements.
If your district additionally requires that credits be from a graduate program, all TPAI courses meet this criterion, too.
See salary advancement & license renewal requirements for your state.
