Educator Courses

About our courses for educators:

These courses are intended for teachers, educators, and administrators that need to increase their understanding of professional boundaries, professionalism and educator ethics. Our educator courses are designed to improve accountability and help participants learn how to improve their professionalism in the workplace. These courses are approved by many state boards of education to satisfy disciplinary requirements, and have also been instrumental for a variety of private and public higher education institutions and organizations to remediate their staff.

Through these courses, participants will learn to:

  • Enhance boundary/ethics protection plans to protect schools, teachers, and students
  • Improve ethical decision making through the recognition of risk factors
  • Foster professional accountability
  • Reduce professional isolation often encountered during the disciplinary process by offering a supportive, educational experience
