​Course Schedules


The PedFACTs course is available as an onsite course or hybrid course: 

The onsite course is a 4-hour course, conducted entirely in the classroom. This course is taught by a PedFACTs instructor. It consists of Session 1 and Session 2.​

The hybrid course is a combination of online learning, followed by hands-on practice in the classroom. Instead of attending Session 1 of the onsite course, students learn this material in self-directed online modules. After completing all of the online modules, students take the online final examination. Then students attend Session 2 of the course for hands-on practice and instructor interaction.​
