CDX Regional Automotive Instructor Training

for Fall of 2008

 

In an effort to support the automotive programs of the Commonwealth, the Virginia Department of Education, Office of Career and Technical Education awarded a request for proposal (RFP) to CDX for an innovative, technology-based curriculum supplement available to instructors and students, 24 hours a day. In cooperation with the Department of Education, CDX will be providing regional one-day training events for all automotive instructors this fall.

 

Individuals must be employed as a Trade and Industrial Education Automotive Maintenance, Automotive Service, or Automotive Technology instructor. Registration for the training will be online and CDX will contact instructors concerning details and registration instructions.

 

Due to the training events' regional format, no overnight travel will be reimbursed. The Department will reimburse participants in accordance with state travel guidelines for mileage and substitutes. Teachers should register for the training that is closest to their school division. The application deadline for all training sessions is September 12, 2008.
