The Principal Certificate online program from Eastern Washington University can enhance your expertise in the role of principal by adding knowledge and know-how in a number of areas including governance, school law, leadership and strategic planning.
A key advantage of the online program is the flexibility it offers educators who want to keep their jobs while completing coursework to earn a career-enhancing credential.
EWU's online Principal Certification program offers seven different start dates each year, which makes the program suitable for most anyone.
Each course for the online Principal Certificate program lasts six weeks. Full-time educators can make the most of evenings and weekends, completing coursework when it is most convenient for them. Chunks of time spent commuting or waiting for children at soccer practice can be put to good use to finish reading assignments or participate in online discussion boards.
Be sure to check with your school or organization regarding full or partial tuition reimbursements for continuing education. Communicating your higher education intent to your employer shows that you are serious about investing in yourself and your career. It can also signal your readiness for leadership roles.
