Illuminations CDE Programs

Instructor Illuminations

The Instructor Illuminations Program provides at-your-desk continuing education for APCO agency instructors and others interested in topics about teaching and learning. The program is offered as an annual subscription-based service and includes four online courses per year – taught quarterly by APCO Institute adjunct instructors. They can be accessed from any computer with Internet access. Topic selections change each year.

A new course begins every three months and must be completed within 90 days, prior to the beginning of the next course. Participants earn three CDEs for each class, for a total of 12 CDEs per subscription year. Each three-month-long course allows participants to earn three CDE hours, for a total of 12 CDEs per subscription year. Participants must submit copies of Instructor Illuminations certificates of completion to the Institute to receive CDEs.
