  2. Content area - This will be a portfolio submitted for one of the four trades and industry areas.


  • The courses will be offered online.
  • Two classes will be offered each fall and spring. Each running 8 weeks, 1 at a time.
  • This is an endorsement to an existing license.
  • It is expected that most portfolio reviews will take place during the summer.


Here are the guidelines for the portfolios.
