Overview of the Paraeducator Certificate Program
The Paraeducator Certificate Program offers statewide standards-based training for instructional paraeducators, and supports a career growth ladder for those who wish to advance their career as a paraeducator or pursue a teaching profession.
School districts are required to:
- Meet paraeducator minimum employment requirements
- Provide two days (14 hours) of training on the Fundamental Course of Study or General Certificate to their paraeducators during the 2021-22 school year. Learn more about district implementation.
It is the responsibility of the school district to provide the FCS and general certificate training to their paraeducators. Paraeducators should not independently seek out training to meet training requirements. Trainings are located on LearnPSD.
