PLU Guidelines for Alabama Teachers
The Alabama State Department of Education encourages certified Alabama teachers to expand their knowledge and instructional skills through continuing education and professional development. Alabama requires teachers to continue their teacher training and consider PLUs (Professional Learning Units) as the main measure of teacher development. The Alabama State Department of Education offers several resources for teachers to gain continuing education training and earn PLUs. We encourage teachers who wish to take our trainings to use our convenient Approval Request Form to request approval of our course content for ongoing Alabama PLU requirements.
- Use our Request Approval form to request approval for a Model Teaching course to be used to satisfy your PLU or CEU requirements.
- Receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of the course, documenting course clock hours and micro-credential badges.
- Subscribe for one year of access to all available online courses or learn more about our online professional development courses
Approval Request Form
Alabama Teachers are encouraged to download and submit this Request For Approval form to your certificate-granting agency in order to verify that Model Teaching’s courses qualify for your state or school district's continuing education, recertification, or clock hour requirements.
