Online Courses for Paraprofessionals
Knowledge and Skill Development for Special Education Paraprofessionals in Pennsylvania
Sessions from PaTTAN’s Special Education Paraprofessional Training Series are available online. Trainings provide practical information regarding educational methods and resources to special education paraprofessionals working with students in a variety of educational settings. These sessions will assist special education paraprofessionals to gain knowledge related to the standards listed in the Pennsylvania Credential of Competency Checklist, and obtain in-service training hours required by Pennsylvania regulations.
Each session is a separate course featuring a synchronized presentation of the speaker, the PowerPoint slides, and captioned text that appear simultaneously on the computer screen. Participants who view a course from start to finish and complete a brief assessment will be eligible to download and print a certificate of attendance indicating hours of in-service training time.
