ACTEAZ - Association for Career and Technical Education of Arizona

Premier Program Series

Plan your Career Development!

Are you teaching with a Provisional Certification and really need your Standard Certificate? Have you always wanted to sharpen your classroom management skills? Are you a new CTSO advisor? Is your laboratory safe and manageable for your students? If you answer yes to any or all of the questions above, then the ACTEAZ Premier Program Series of professional development courses is your answer.

The Courses in the Premier Program Series are all taught by highly engaging instructors who model best practices in the classroom. You will leave each course with strategies to carry you through your teaching career. You will also leave each course with activities you can use in your classroom the next day. All of the materials are available electronically for your use.
