PTA E-Learning

NPTA
Go Back-to-School with PTA E-Learning
67894471_thumbnail.jpgDo you want to be a better leader? Want to learn more about PTA? National PTA e-learning courses can help!
There are National PTA e-learning courses for experienced PTA volunteers and new members, covering various topics in just 30-45 minutes. Although these courses are full of useful and insightful information, we know that not everyone has an hour to invest into a course, so National PTA has developed “micro-courses.”
Introducing Micro-Courses!  
National PTA Micro-Courses take a specific subject from longer e-learning courses and cover it in just 10-15 minutes, so learners can get the information they need in a manageable amount of time.
We also wanted to meet the needs of PTA’s growing Hispanic membership base, so we’ve translated our core National PTA e-learning courses into Spanish, including:
  • PTA Basics
  • Board Basics
  • Local Unit President
  • Local Unit Secretary
Check out the full library of PTA e-learning courses at PTA.org/E-Learning.
