Developed in accordance with the California Department of Education’s Recommended GATE Standards, Cal State Fullerton’s Online Gate Certificate Program is designed to meet the exemplary level requirement.
Completion of the five-class (10 units) GATE certificate will enable teachers to meet this professional development requirement and is recommended for any educator working with or planning to work with gifted children. The instructors involved in this program are all working professionals in the field of GATE Education.
While the first class, Introduction to Talented & Gifted: Working with High Achievers is the prerequisite for all the other courses, the other online GATE training classes can be taken concurrently.
If you are interested in completing the GATE Certificate Program or if you are just starting out, Summer 2014 is the time since all five classes included in the certificate program will be offered. Beginning in Fall 2014, Extended Education will sunset the program for the next two academic semesters. Please let us know if you have questions.
Designed for teachers who are currently teaching GATE students or have the potential to be placed in that assignment.
