1. Who needs training—new or returning subs?
For new substitutes, we offer online and printed courses. For returning subs, we offer advanced courses. To learn about all of our courses, go to http://mylearning.stedi.org/stedi-shop/.
2. Do you prefer online or printed training?
Our online course is called “SubSkills” and takes about eight hours to complete. On our website, this is Basic Option A.
Our printed course is our “Substitute Teacher Handbook” 9th edition. On our website, this is Basic Option B.
Some subs prefer both the online and printed versions. On our website, this is our Premium package.
Some people prefer everything. This is the Ultimate package.
All options will train your subs. All courses include our online assessment and SubDiploma for those who pass.
3. Who should pay for the training—the sub or the district?
Some districts make the subs pay for their own training. Other districts pay for the sub training. If your district pays, we offer bulk discounts. To talk about the pros and cons of both options, and to learn about our bulk discounts, e-mail Kelley@stedi.org or call 435-755-7800, ext. 5103.
