Instructions for Departments providing In-Service In-House

Departments may conduct in-house in-service classes rather than utilizing the online modules.  However, all instructors who teach the MPTC in-service curriculum must attend an MPTC train-the-trainer class in the particular in-service topic area prior to teaching.  Attending a train-the trainer class will give the instructors access to the lesson plans, power points, and handouts on ACADIS. 

An instructor can access the training materials by signing into their ACADIS account.  Once they are signed in, they will click on HOME in the upper left-hand corner of the screen, toggle down to TRAINING and then locate the class they will be teaching.  The instructor will then see a yellow file folder that contains all their training materials that they can download onto a thumb drive. 

Departments looking for a list of qualified instructors can contact MPTC's Curriculum & Instruction Specialist Steve Cromack @ Steven.E.Cromack@mass.gov.
