This certificate will be accepted by the certification office in lieu of transcripted college credit. It counts toward the “Professional Knowledge” coursework required to transform a “Provisional CTE Certificate” into a “Standard CTE Certificate”. There is no cost for the certificate.
Currently the University of Arizona Agriculture Education Department will grant undergraduate credit or graduate credit. (course title: AED 497) or graduate credit (course title: AED 597). Credit is also being offered by Northern Arizona University as graduate credit (CTE576). The cost of tuition is the responsibility of the teacher at the University level.
Professional Growth Certificate
For teachers with a Standard CTE Certificate a professional growth certificate will be issued by ACTEAZ for either 15 hours of Continuing Education or 30 hours, depending on the course. These hours count toward the 180 hours needed every 6 years for recertification. There is no cost for the certificate.
Implementation of the CTE Premier Program Delivery model supported by Professionalism and CTE Program Management are foundational elements that will ensure effective and efficient instruction for the success of all CTE students.
