Penn Consulting provides professional staff development and in service training for early childhood educators throughout the nation. We are an approved professional development vendor for Georgia Department of Education's Office of Professional Learning and our courses are approved by Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and in a bid to ensure the safety and health of our students and staff we have closed the office and taken all face-to-face courses onto a LIVE videoconferencing platform.

Enrollment in the online 40-Hour Directors training;version is on a rolling basis and the course is self-paced (you work whenever your schedule permits you to).You may begin the online class immediately.

The online student reviews the manual and PowerPoint presentations, completes online class assignments, and I provide feedback Monday through Friday and often on weekends. Once you have registered you receive a receipt immediately.  Course materials (manual and PowerPoint presentations) are downloaded in the Edmodo online platform.  The nonrefundable promotional rate for the online version is $199/person ($325 savings off the regular price).
