CONTINUING EDUCATION

Along with including 5 PDs for attendance at our Annual Educating Mindfully Conference, COSEM is excited to offer its professional members the following continuing education options. It is your responsibility to check with your licensing board to confirm that they'll accept continuing education credits as detailed below. 

Contact Tracy at hello@educatingmindfully.org with any questions. 

24 PD HOURS

COSEM is an ISBE-approved Illinois state PD provider. Below is the process and costs for earning 24 PD hours for teachers:
