NASET Continuing Education/Professional Development Courses
Purpose of NASET's Continuing Education/Professional Development Courses
In general, the primary purpose of schools and school districts requiring Continuing Education/Professional Development (CE/PD) is to ensure that their educators are provided with high quality, rigorous professional development experiences linked to advancing student learning. The awarding of NASET Study Hours is a component towards any final CE/PD requirement and is the final step in the development and implementation of professional development plans. The appropriate awarding of NASET Study Hours signifies that the professional development activities have met the highest standards and are contributing to the enhanced quality and ability of educators in a school and or district.
The purpose and goal of requiring NASET CE/PD for special or general educators are to continue to offer strong teaching skills and a base of knowledge for teachers of students with special needs at all age levels. These courses are a way for special and general educators, at any level, to gain further experience in the issues that the students and their parents face. Further, these courses will help special and general educators find ways to assist in achieving and maintaining an appropriate educational experience that will provide educational benefit for their students.
NASET Study Hours
One (1) NASET Study Hour is defined as, "one hour of course study". All NASET CE/PD courses requires a specific number of hours for completion. The number of NASET Study Hours is listed next to each course title. For example, a course may indicate that 10 NASET Study Hours will be earned upon the completion of a course. If your school or district defines a CEU credit as 10 hours of study, then this course should be the equivalent of one CEU. Further, if a NASET CE/PD grants five NASET Study Hours upon completion and your school or school district defines one CEU as 10 hours, then you will need to take another course that grants five NASET Study Hours (CEH) courses (10 CEH) to attain one CEU credit.
CEU credits can be defined by several different names or labels. Some may include Continuing Education Hour (CEH), Professional Development Hours (PDH), State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH), Independent Study Hours (ISH), Self-Study Course Hours (SSCH), etc.
Awarding NASET Study Hours approved by NASET and applied to a school or school district's CEU requirement provides a quality indicator for continuing education and training programs because it signifies that the staff has been reviewed and approved for complying with a recognized standard.
