Technical School District Will Offer Credits To Adults

Posted: June 18, 1998

The Camden County Technical School District plans to start offering Continuing Education Unit credits - or CEUs - to adult school students starting in September, school officials announced at their board meeting last night.

This could enable teachers to obtain credits that satisfy continuing education requirements and could also result in salary increases, while employees in noneducational fields could obtain credits necessary for job advancement, according to District Superintendent R. Sanders Haldeman.

Haldeman said he anticipated that certification would be obtained from the International Association of Continuing Education and Training by the end of the summer.

The school district's Technical Institute adult education curriculum offers about 50 programs that would be eligible for Continuing Education Unit credits, Haldeman said. Technical Institute courses are offered at both the district's Gloucester Township and Pennsauken campuses.

In addition, Haldeman said the Camden County Educational Technology Training Center, which is run by the school district at its Gloucester Township campus to provide computer training to educators, will also provide continuing education credits. He said about 1,400 educators attended training at the center over the last school year.

Haldeman said 10 hours of classroom time equaled one continuing education credit.

In other business, the district accepted a $124,900 state grant to carry out the second year of the three-year New Beginnings Single Parent Program. The program provides construction or computer repair job-training to approximately 20 to 30 single mothers each year.
