AmazeWorks Professional Development for Educators

AmazeWorks is proud to be an approved provider of the required Cultural Competency Training needed for Minnesota tiered teacher license renewal. In accordance with Minnesota Statutes, section 120B.30, subdivision 1, paragraph (q), all teachers must receive cultural competency training in order to renew their teaching licenses. The Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) has partnered with organizations and consultants, including AmazeWorks, to create a day-long cultural competency training to satisfy the Minnesota Administrative Rule 8710.0310.

Schools and districts can contract directly with AmazeWorks to provide this six to eight hour training for their teachers.
