Pre-service Academy

Pre-service Academy is required of ALL Limited Occupational Specialist (LOS) certificate holders, whether or not you:

  • Are employed as an instructor at the secondary or postsecondary level; or
  • Intend to be a member of the InSpIRE Cohort Fall 2021.

You need to be a part of the 2021 Pre-service Academy if:

  • You want to participate in the InSpIRE Cohort opportunity beginning Fall 2021; and/or
  • You are currently a participant in InSpIRE Cohort and beginning your second year in this Cohort; and/or
  • You have not yet participated in a previous Summer Academy, and you hold a LOS certificate

You do not need to be a part of the 2021 Pre-service Academy if:

  • You have already participated in Pre-service or Summer Academy training in a previous year and are finishing the balance of requirements through a university program

When you apply for renewal of your LOS certificate—a move to at least the Standard Occupational Specialist certificate—you will need to demonstrate your participation in the Pre-service or Summer Academy by including a copy of your certificate of completion.

We’re looking forward to engaging you in a meaningful, endless-possibilities kind of training this fall.
