    SHE-New-Cohort-2015About our Program-New Blended Format

    Our newly revised 910 Add-On Health License Program offered by the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse allows future school health educators to learn and explore best practices in the field of school health education. Approved for licensure in the State of Wisconsin*, this 15 credit program embraces the new InTASC standards and will allow participants to better understand the EdTPA assessment process. Up-to-date health information and skill development will be emphasized throughout the program. Interested participants must hold a current, Wisconsin DPI teaching license.

    *This program is approved for licensure in the State of Wisconsin only. If you are seeking certification within another state, you must contact your state's certification office to ensure courses/credits will be accepted.
