Advanced Certificate: Inclusive and Special Education (Non-Cert.)
The Advanced Certificate in Inclusive and Special Education (Non-Cert.) is designed to provide a sequenced program of study that provides the knowledge and competencies to effectively address the needs of individuals with mild to moderate disabilities in primarily inclusive settings. This program is open to anyone interested in obtaining skills that are applicable in a traditional classroom setting, as well as a variety of non-classroom contexts.
Upon completing the program, participants who already hold a teaching certification may be able to apply for an additional teaching certificate in Students with Disabilities at the grade level consistent with their initial classroom-teaching certificate. Note that obtaining certification takes place after the completion of this program and is something the student must complete individually. SUNY Potsdam does not recommend for certification as typical with other degree programs.
