For clients searching for ENVoY opportunities: Nancy Burns, Jacki Brickman, and their teams have been field-testing and updating their curriculum to even better serve the needs of educators. Their curriculum adjustments included revising course names to more accurately describe the content. For courses that previously were offered to educators under a different name, the core learning was carried over to the new course and coupled with new learning.

Upon successful completion of courses, the participant will receive graduate-level professional development credit. These credits are not part of a degree program but instead are primarily used for professional advancement such as salary increment steps and recertification. Students should seek approval of appropriate district or college officials before enrolling in these courses to satisfy any degree, state credential, or local school district requirements. This credit may be applied toward a degree program at the discretion of the accepting institution.
