Riverside County BTSA/Teacher Induction Training

Graduate-Level Professional Development Units for BTSA/Teacher Induction Training through Riverside County Office of Education (RCOE/CTI)

You may receive 8 Graduate-Level Professional Development Semester Units/Credits from the University of the Pacific for the work you have already done this year in BTSA/Teacher Induction! In offering this, you would be registering for two 4 unit/credit courses (see the list of courses below). This applies to both new teachers and to Teacher Induction support providers.

Earn 4 Graduate-Level Professional Development Units/Credits for only $200 or 8 Graduate-Level Professional Development Units/Credits for only $400!

You do not need to turn in to Courses4Teachers anything other than your registration(s) and payment. We do however, need to know what academic year you are applying for, and if this is your first or second year of BTSA/Teacher Induction.

Grace Aviles, Credential Coordinator, CTI/RCOE, will send us a list of teachers who have completed the BTSA/Teacher Induction requirements around July 1st. As soon as we receive that list, we will email you a grade confirmation letter and your grade will be processed by the University of the Pacific.

Please note that it can take up to 6-8 weeks from the time you have been graded to receive your Unofficial Transcript and order your Official Transcript should you need one.
