About Our Courses

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.

District Salary Advancement

Our accredited graduate level courses (ED501) meet the criteria for salary advancement for K-12 licensed teachers in all 50 states.

Please follow your district’s procedures/guidelines when registering for our graduate courses as each district sets its own policies.

Master of Education (M.Ed.)

TPAI is a partner in Colorado State University-Pueblo’s online M.Ed. program. If you are enrolled in that program, our affordable and flexible courses can help fulfill your graduate credit requirements. Click here to learn more.

State License Renewal

Nearly all states (a few have alternative requirements) accept TPAI coursework for teacher re-certification or license renewal. Learn more about the license renewal requirements in your state.

Inside Our Courses

Whether you’re an elementary, middle, high school, or specialist teacher, you’ll love the flexibility to work independently on assignments that directly impact your teaching.

All of our courses follow a similar format:

Assignment #1 (Building Background Knowledge)

Read the coursebook (see courses).

Assignment #2 (Assessment)

Respond in writing to questions based on the coursebook reading.

Assignment #3 (Personalized Research)

Dig deeper into course content by exploring and researching the ideas and topics that interest you most. You’ll write a paper tying what you learned to your specific teaching role.

Assignment #4 (Personalized Practice)

Our fourth assignment will give you the opportunity to move from theory to practice. You’ll choose from a variety of activities (writing lesson plans, designing curriculum, practicing strategies, collaborating with colleagues, creating materials, etc.) that will tie course content to your immediate teaching needs.
