Lehigh's 12-credit Certificate program is aimed at post-certification in-service teachers, informal educators, and others seeking to expand their pedagogical skills and knowledge of instructional technology. Note: a Lehigh Certificate of Completion is not the same as a Pennsylvania Department of Education Certification.
