Renewal Units & Graduate Credit Opportunities
Teachers, are you looking for a convenient, economical way to earn Continuing Education Units (OPI renewal units) or Graduate Credits for your teacher’s license renewal?
Our Ed2Go courses are a convenient way to get your renewal units. These instructor-facilitated non-credit courses are informative, convenient, highly interactive, and most are only $104 and are worth 24 Renewal Units through the Office of Public Instruction. Each six-week class has a two-week grace period at the end. Courses are project-oriented and include lessons, quizzes, assignments, discussion areas, and supplementary links. You can do coursework at any time of the day or night.
Before taking a course for renewal units, please be sure that course will fit your learning plan. Upon enrollment, let us know that you plan to use the class to earn renewal units, so we can initiate your documentation. Once your course is completed, reach out to us once again, and we'll finalize your renewal unit certificate. You will fill in your personal information, and submit to the Office of Public Instruction.
