Chicago Public Schools-Lane credits online professional development courses

All courses approved for 3 Lane Credits and 45 Clock Hours / CPDUs.  You may now take as many Lane Credits per year as you wish.

If you’ve already taken all our courses offered on the Learning Hub, or what is offered does not apply to you, you may now take any of our courses for credit. The official transcript issued by our university partner can then be submitted to Chicago Public Schools for Lane Credits. This would not go through the Learning Hub.

You can view our courses in our Online Professional Development for Illinois Educators section.
