Illinois State University is an approved provider of Certified Professional Development Units (CPDU) for Illinois K-12 teachers. CPDUs are one of the official currencies by which state teachers fulfill their continuing certification requirements. Like CEUs, CPDUs can be offered for a wide variety of non-credit educational purposes. CPDU-granting offerings must follow specific procedures and must be pre-approved through a state coordinating office. Illinois State Conference Services coordinates, awards, and maintains institutional records of CPDUs, as well as working with providers to ensure that all state requirements are met. More information (including forms for the instructors) is available on the Teacher Certificate Renewal page OR by calling (309) 438-2160.
Our office plans and manages business, professional, and community conferences on our campus and throughout the United States. We look forward to working with you on your upcoming conference!
