Florida Association of Career and Technical Educators (FACTE)-Professional Development Opportunities

The 2013-14 Online Course Schedule is out!

These free, six week programs include 18 hours of weekly online lessons and weekly live sessions. These hours represent only the time spent in the weekly online sessions and in the lessons. The research, creation, organizing and presentation of materials and activities outside of the sessions requires more time. Most teachers will spend an average of 10 hours per week over the six week period; hence the 60 recommended in-service points. That number more accurately reflects the intensity and number of work products produced.

Registration shall be completed online through the FACTE website: or

Participants will be provided a complete course syllabus upon enrollment.
