Professional Development Programs for Teachers

Bergen Community College’s Division of Continuing Education is a registered New Jersey Professional Development Provider for the New Jersey Department of Education.

The Division of Continuing Education and the Department of Social Sciences have collaborated to create the CDA=Nine Credits initiative.
