Welcome to the ASPD Snack Center

The ASPD Snack Center provides fast-paced, fully online, engaging courses with targeted content to support individuals who want quick, focused continuing education opportunities without college credit.

ASPD Snack Center courses are open to anyone with or without a college degree:  educators, paraprofessionals, office staff, and individuals across all fields.

All courses are awarded a certificate of completion showing contact hours

Credit Option

From time to time, ASPD combines multiple Snack Center courses for undergraduate or graduate level professional development credits.  These credits will be awarded through University of Massachusetts Global (UMG) when available.   One or more projects and an additional fee payable to UMG may be required to earn graduate professional development credits.

Can I use these credits for Continuing Education and Relicensing requirements?

All credits for individual Snack Center courses are based on contact hours.  Contact the entity to which you wish to submit credits (such as a State, School District, Licensing Board, employer, etc.) to assure ASPD Snack Center course credits will be accepted for the intended purpose(s) before registering.
