STEM Award of Completion


The Professional Development Institute, in association with the prestigious University of California San Diego Division of Extended Studies (UCSD), has established a STEM Competency Program for teachers of grades K-12. In our rapidly advancing world, it is clear that student mastery of science, technology, mathematics, and engineering is key to both academic growth as well as professional growth in the future. Through PDI's STEM Competency Program, if you complete any four courses listed below, you will receive a STEM Competency Award of Completion from UCSD. Upon PDI's verification of satisfactory completion of the requirements, UCSD will mail a certificate to you suitable for framing and displaying in your classroom, or it can be used as evidence of excellence as part of your professional portfolio.

Review the details below to find out how to get started in this exciting program.


To obtain the PDI/UCSD STEM Award of Completion, simply follow the steps below.

If you have questions about this program, please contact the PDI Program Coordinator, Shannon Philips, at shannon@webteaching.com.

** UCSD and PDI require that you spend a minimum of three weeks in EACH of your online courses. In other words, if you register for two online courses, you will be expected to spend three weeks in each course for a total of six weeks. The timeline begins from the day you register and runs consecutively, not concurrently, when taking multiple courses. Completion paperwork will not be processed until the minimum timeline requirement has been met. Both PDI and UCSD are intent on ensuring that the participant is able to maximize the knowledge gained by meaningful involvement in the program.
