Upcoming Training 

Illinois is leading the nation by offering experienced School Psychologists, who are interested in supervising trainees, a FREE training opportunity to earn an ISPA endorsed credential in supervision.  This link provides a description of the program Supervisor Credential Flyer. We are pleased that a team led by Dr. Mark Swerdlik will be hosting a remote training option so that individuals may take advantage of advancing their supervision skills from the comfort of their home or office and interact and dialogue with other school psychologists across the state about this important competency. The training is offered across four days in an attempt to maintain participant engagement and allow professionals a half-day for other commitments. Participants must be an ISPA member and complete all four, 3-hour training sessions and the metasupervision hours to earn the credential. Upcoming dates for the first remote training offering (four separate meetings) are as follows. Please register for each day and time to complete the training.

Registration is Open!
