The certification process for professional-technical instructors includes assessing the attainment of the standards contained in the professional-technical skill standards and the completion of a professional development plan. The professional development plan identifies priorities for professional growth. The priorities should address, at a minimum, the professional-technical faculty's ability to provide student instruction, supervise learning environments and implement curriculum, outcomes, and assessments. The professional development plan shall be developed in collaboration with the instructor and will include, based on local bargaining agreements, at least five professional development activities, linked to the professional-technical faculty skill standards.
The professional development plan includes:
(1) Faculty (self) and administrator identification of professional development activities for professional growth.
(2) Measurable outcomes and objective standards for measurement of skill standard achievement.
(3) A timeline for successful achievement of outcomes.
Examples of professional development activities include, but are not limited to, workshops, courses of instruction, conferences, industry experiences and projects. The assigned professional-technical administrator supervisor shall be responsible for the approval of the professional development plan. The chief professional-technical administrator shall be responsible for the approval of professional development activities.
