There is no $ cost associated with the eLDE online courses. The only “cost” is your time and effort. The courses are designed to take 4-5 hours per week or 30 hours total to complete (you will receive re-licensure hours upon successful completion). Plus, the courses are entirely online (no face-to-face sessions). Each facilitator-led course runs for seven weeks with an orientation week followed by 6 weeks of content where there are specific readings, activities, and an online discussion each week.
Registration is currently open for the SPRING 2015 sessionthat runs from Wednesday, March 18, 2015 to Tuesday, May 12, 2015. We understand that spring break falls during the course, so the week that starts before the traditional spring break (week after Easter) will be extended to two weeks so you can enjoy spring break, and take the opportunity to expand your horizons after you have had a chance to re-charge over spring break.
