Undergraduate and Graduate Professional Development Level PDPs Now Available.
Graduate Professional Development Level PDPs (GPDL) are now available. The GPDL level requires additional writing assignments of answering four Critical Thinking Questions (a minimum of 500 words each). You must also summarize (minimum 200 words) three relevant journal articles of your choice on topics related to the course. Students that successfully pass the GPDL coursework receive Massachusetts PDP portfolio documentation indicating GPDL study. Writing assignments are evaluated by VESi faculty. You have six months to complete the course. After VESi submits the grade report to HCC, you receive Commonwealth of Massachusetts PDP credits within approximately 10-15 days.

VESi recommends that you check with your school district and/or state licensing agency to verify these course offerings will meet your district and/or state requirements for salary advancement and/or state certificate re-licensure.
