On-line Training

ACSI Professional Development is accomplished, in part, through our online course offerings. Each course is designed as a practical and highly interactive course for a minumum 10 participants at each course offering. It does not require you to travel or even to connect to a live lecture, but instead uses an asynchronous environment on a Moodle platform to deliver quality content to each participant. These courses are now being developed in multiple languages but will be presented first in English.

ACSI Europe is certified to issue CEUs (Continuing Education Units) valid within the ACSI Global community of Christian schools. These CEU's can be collected to achieve ACSI teacher certification. An electronic certificate of completion is available free of charge, while a printed certificate with CEU credit is available for a small processing fee. The purpose of ACSI Certification is to strengthen Christian schools by credentialing educators who meet established professional and biblical requirements, which promotes continued professional learning and increased effectiveness. Establishing and maintaining the certification of staff and administration is an essential step toward professional credibility and growth. ACSI certification is available to qualified teachers, directors, and administrators of all nations.
