CPT INSTRUCTOR TRAINING

CPT Instructor Training Schedule 2014

MSSC provides an intensive, three-day course to certify teachers and instructors on ways to teach MSSC CPT courses in different learning environments. An “Instructors Package” (a $1500 value) is provided to each individual enrolled in this three-day course.

This Instructor’s Package includes all materials needed by an instructor or teacher: PowerPoint presentations, facilitator notes, visuals, play maps, unit completion times, optional delivery methods, math problems and answers, and instructions on assisting students with the MSSC online course material. Instructor trainees will also be provided with 180 days of online access to the computer-based training material.

Please contact Tabita Fermino with any questions you may have.

For attending the three-day training, instructors will be listed as “authorized” instructors on the MSSC website. Instructors will be kept on this list as “authorized” to instruct in the module areas in which they pass an assessment.
