To provide procedures for developing and implementing a new/renewal Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course for Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) credit.
CPD courses carry MSDE credit. CPD courses must be designed to maintain graduate school level standards and increase knowledge and professional competence in specific job-related areas. All CPD courses should be evaluated by local units to determine their effectiveness in meeting objectives and the ability of instructors to present the material. All local units determine the immediate and long-range needs for CPD courses for which certification and salary increase may be awarded.
