Paraeducator Accelerated Training Hub

Registration opens August 2!

Paraeducator Accelerated Training Hub – Registration is Now Open!
CSEA is answering the call to help prepare new paraeducators for the classroom by utilizing our experience and expertise to launch the Paraeducator Accelerated Training Hub, PATH, set to go live on August 2, 2021. 

PATH overview:

  • PATH opens August 2, 2021

  • Fee: $150 per subscription (through April 2022)

  • Over 40 on-demand trainings

  • New content added regularly

Earlier this year, the state appropriated money via Assembly Bill 86 for hiring paraeducators to provide the one-on-one attention students need to get back on track this next school year. Additionally, the recently signed state budget for 2021/2022 makes funds available for training paraeducators via the Educator Effectiveness Block Grant. 


As new paraeducators join school districts, CSEA has resources to train and prepare them to be valuable support in the classroom.  We have been the respected go-to paraeducator professional development source for over two decades, offering training, educational opportunities and hosting the largest paraeducator conference in the nation.  


PATH has been developed with the new and seasoned paraprofessional in mind and covers topics such as the fundamentals of being a paraeducator, roles and responsibilities, and working collaboratively with a team. Specialized modules are perfect for ongoing development for paraeducators at any point in their career.
