Continuing Education

Continuing Education (CEU) credit is a nationally recognized measure of sponsored activity through institutes, workshops and short courses. In some states, it will apply toward pay increases, certificate renewal or in-service training. Each coach will have to contact their local school board to know if any of these options apply in their state.

CEU credit workshops are conducted at every NDA camp during the summer (excluding home camps). The cost to acquire the credit is an additional fee over the normal coach fee for attending camp.

All participants for these CEU credits MUST be received in the NDA Corporate Office no later than September 30, 2019. Certificates will be sent to the participants by the end of the current year. In order to receive credit, coaches are required to attend all classes and meetings.
