Continuing Education Study Materials and Tests Available through The Journal of Adventist Education®
A number of articles that appeared in The Journal of Adventist Education® have been approved by the North American Division (NAD) Office of Education for continuing education credit. The materials cannot be used for initial denominational teacher certification, nor do they convey college credit. Teachers in K-12 NAD schools who are working on denominational teacher re-certification can obtain 0.5 Continuing Education Units Credit or 5 Contact Hours for successfully completing a test on each of these articles. (For additional information on what you are required to do to obtain NAD teacher re-certification, or how much credit from JAE courses can be used toward this goal, contact your union conference certification officer. If you are required to complete a course on denominational history or another subject for re-certification, you will need to satisfactorily complete both tests to obtain credit.)
The study material costs U.S. $2.50 for each part (a two-part article costs $5.00; a three-part article, $7.50). Each article contains about 16 printed pages. When ordering the study material please send payment in the form of a check or money order made payable to The Journal of Adventist Education®. To obtain the study material, or to request additional information, write:

You will need to take each test in the presence of a proctor—your principal, another professional teacher, your board chairperson, or pastor. Dr. Davidson will mail you the results of your test, and will also send a formal notification to your union conference office of education. She also maintains a file with information about the courses you have successfully completed. If you move to a different union conference, contact her, and she will send a record of the tests you have taken to the certification officer in the new union.
Please note that some of the articles have been discontinued. The ones listed below are still available.
Watch for information coming soon on new study materials and revisions of courses already available.
