 CETPA's Online Course Programs

CETPA's membership consists of the IT Professionals supporting all of the technology being used in schools today. This is an ever-widening field and Local Education Agencies (LEAs) constantly struggle to support and enhance student learning with the effective use of technology as well as support the administrative processes and infrastructure requirements required for every institution. Effective and consistent training is difficult to maintain given the ever-changing technology landscape.

CETPA membership asked for options for online courses for both IT staff and administrative staff. CETPA responded by offering two excellent choices from Learnport and Knowledgenet. 




Learnport offers world class, affordable online training to it’s members and educational partners.
The foundation of LearnPort is its strategic partnerships with three highly successful companies:
 Skillsoft,  GetAbstract, and  Blatant Media.
