CPT Instructor Training

CPT Authorized Instructor Training can be attended in one of three ways: Online, In person, or your site can hold a Remote Training.  Each option comes with an ‘Instructor’s Package’ that 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.

For attending the Online, In Person, or Remote Authorized Instructor 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.
