Program Overview

The online Work-Based Learning, Graduate Endorsement program is designed for teachers who are involved in work-based and vocational programming.

An endorsement in work-based learning prepares and supports teachers involved in work-based and vocational programming. 

A work-based learning supplemental endorsement for Nebraska requires 3 credit hours of classroom instruction and 1,000 hours of verified work experience other than teaching. Students pursuing certification in other states must check with their State Department of Education for certification requirements.
