CTE Course Description:

Course Description:

This course offers educators the opportunity to earn university credits by developing practical activities based on a CTE seminar.

Credit Information Brandman University will award 1, 2, 3, or 4 semester hours of graduate level professional development credits based upon successful completion of course requirements. These credits are not part of a degree program but instead are primarily used for professional advancement (such as salary increment steps and recertification).

Students should seek approval of appropriate district or college officials before enrolling in these courses to satisfy any degree, state credential, or local school district requirements. State licensing departments vary regarding their criteria for credit acceptance, and some states may not accept credit from universities that are located outside the state.
