The Center for Recertification and Professional Development, Inc. is an Illinois State School Board approved provider of CPDUs and CEUs to Illinois public school teachers. Our focus is on internet based distance learning course work designed to be convenient and useful for classroom teachers.
Offering – Professional Development Tutorials
Our present offerings are Professional Development Tutorials,
which are teacher designed independent studies completed under the guidance of The
Center for Recertification and Professional Development. The purpose of this series of
independent projects is to allow the participants to gather, synthesize and
organize materials relevant to State, District or Subject Area Goals into a form
with direct classroom application.
Participants will not get credit for merely reading a book
or other materials, but for shaping such reading and research into a form
that would enhance their expertise and benefit their students.
Three or six CPDUs are available. The
applicant will choose a topic of personal professional development interest and
design a 3 hour or 6 hour individual study course that fulfills an official goal
of the State Board of Education, a district School Improvement PLAN goal, or a
Subject Area goal.
Also, be sure your project fits your own Certificate Renewal Plan on file with
your Local Professional Development Committee.

TCFR will review the proposed project and, if necessary,
e-mail it back for modification. Upon successful review and approval of the
proposed project, TCFR will notify the applicant. The
applicant will then proceed with the project by completing the agreed upon
course work, and filling out the Project Submission Form for approval by TCFR -
usually within 3 - 5 working days. TCFR will bill the applicant by e-mail.
Payment is by PayPal, a secure internet bill
payment service. There is no additional service fee to the buyer, only the TCFR course
fee. Registration is free at www.paypal.com. (See FAQ #9).

On completion of payment and when the project is approved, the applicant will be sent, by surface mail,
the certificate of CPDU credit, indicating credit for either three or six units
and an Illinois State Board of Education evaluation form to be returned to TCFR.
However, if the project is found to be unsatisfactory, applicants must complete the required revisions and resubmit their materials. Be sure to allow time to process and if rejected to modify and resubmit. Examples.Dr. John F. Gills, Director.
