Mission of the EDT Program
The mission of the Cerritos College Educational Technology Program is to demystify the use of technology and help educators create and deliver technologically innovative programs and curriculums to a diverse student population. This mission is accomplished through our specialized training courses and certificate program. The majority of EDT courses are online. Our faculty are technology professionals who are dedicated to helping educators take charge of their professional development and meet the changing instructional needs of the 21st century. In achieving our mission, the Educational Technology Program promotes lifelong learning for teachers, administrators, and staff.
About the EDT Program
The Educational Technology Program at Cerritos College can help you increase your knowledge of computer-and Internet-based learning tools, give you self-confidence in the use of technology in the classroom, and enable you to invent new ways to deliver instruction. The curriculum consists of several one to three-unit courses. The online courses are designed so you can complete them at a time during the week that is convenient for you. Each course trains educators and prospective educators in technology and/or computer software and the overall integration of technology into instructional courses.
Because the courses are part of the Cerritos College credit curriculum, they may qualify for salary advancement credit or meet continuing education requirements. Please verify salary advancement with your institution.
Educational Technology Certificate
