For CASE/In-Service Credit:
Once you have been issued a CCPS Pre-Paid Enrollment Code and enrollment instructions for your selected course(s), you may enroll and begin your self-paced online course(s) immediately.
Important Note: Since CE Credits Online is a contracted course provider, you will also need to register for any CE Credits Online course in the CCPS Avatar System in order that in-service points can be credited to your personal transcript.
In the CCPS Avatar System, all online courses offered by CE Credits will begin with CE Credits Online… followed by the course title.
Selected courses available for CASE credit will have "CASE" in the course title
CE Credits courses started by employees and not completed incur a cost to the school district. Repeated failure to complete coursework will result in those costs being passed on to that employee
