Pennsylvania State Education Association's Micro-Credential Library
EARN ACT 48 HOURS, POST-GRADUATE CREDIT, AND/OR CHAPTER 14 CERTIFICATES
Certificated PSEA members who attain an NEA micro-credential are eligible to receive one postgraduate credit from Edinboro University (for a $70 fee to EU) or 20 Act 48 hours from PSEA (there is no charge for Act 48 hours). Postgraduate credits count toward Instructional II certification, are equal to 30 Act 48 hours, and may help toward salary advancement (check your local contract).
Certificated PSEA members who complete an NEA micro-credential but do not attain it may revise and re-submit the micro-credential and, if successful, receive one postgraduate credit or 20 Act 48 hours. If a member chooses not to revise and resubmit, PSEA will report 15 Act 48 hours to PDE.
ESP members who do not have a teaching certificate will receive a Chapter 14 certificate for either 15 or 20 hours, depending upon whether the completed micro-credential was successfully attained. Be sure to ALWAYS seek pre-approval from your district to ensure they will apply these learning hours toward your Chapter 14 requirements.
