“Many states encourage providers to take courses longer than one hour so that they get deep information on one topic instead of top level information on many topics,” said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “Our mini certificates are designed for that purpose giving educators varying options to fulfill their professional development needs.”
