CTE provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners. In total, about 12.5 million high school and college students are enrolled in CTE across the nation. In this course, teachers will learn what authentic WBL is and how to ensure students learn the skills and knowledge appropriate for their career pathway in a safe and appropriate environment through collaborative partnerships with local employers.

WBL covers a wide range of occupations, worksites, and students. It is beyond the scope of this course to provide in-depth training for teaching every possible course or situation involving WBL. The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to fundamental concepts with links to additional resources useful to teachers assigned to CTE courses.

This course takes approximately 8 hours to complete. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will earn 8 CPE credits.
