Summer Teacher Training Opportunities

I know teachers, and when summer break comes you are looking forward to some rest and relaxation. After this year with all the diverse situation you justly deserve it!

But I also know summer can be a time when you want to increase your knowledge about different topics you can use in your classroom.

Educators love to learn as much as they love to teach!

The one-hour weekly sessions will cover the following themes: Natural Resources, Livestock, Row Crops, and Specialty Crops. Each theme will be discussed in two week blocks. Sign up for as many sessions as you’d like, and we’ll mail you a session-in-a-box for each theme so you can participate along with us.

*Please note: IAITC is not an approved provider. After each session, we will provide a Certificate of Completion via email that teachers can use with their local unit/provider to obtain PDCH. It may be worthwhile to have a conversation with the staff member who handles PDCH at your school to ensure you are both familiar with how the process will work.
