Self-Paced Courses

AEA PD Online offers many different types of online professional development to fit your needs and your schedule.  Our Self-Paced Courses give you the opportunity to take an online course at your own pace, when you are ready to begin.

Our Self-Paced Courses are a series of our modules on our Learning System.  When you register for the Self-Paced Course, the system automatically sequences all the modules together for you.  In addition, there is a cumulative activity (or in some cases, more than one) at the end for you to complete.

Please note: Some (but not all) of the self-paced courses are available for license renewal credit.  Others are for things like the Coaching Authorization, or mandatory training for ELP modules.  If you are taking a course for credit, be sure to look for License Renewal listed in the course title.

The advantages of Self-Paced Courses are:

  • You can begin any time you want, instead of waiting for the next section
  • There are no course deadlines.  If you want to move quickly through the content, you can.  If you need to stop and come back later, you can as well.
  • In many cases, the courses include modules that may be a district requirement, in essence killing two birds with one stone.
  • License renewal credit is only $85, less expensive than our facilitated courses

6. You will then proceed through the course, with text, videos, links, and interactives, as well as end-of-unit quizzes.  At the end will be the cumulative activities.  Please read closely what is expected, as you will need to be taking notes or completing activities as you go through the modules.

7. Once you are completed with the Self-Paced Course, it will ask you to verify your information in our Registration System, where you will also make your payment.

8. After you have paid, your system records will show you have completed a course.  At that time, you should receive an email from our registration system, telling you how you can download your transcript.
