DLC Training

Digital Learning Competencies for Teachers and Administrators are an important part of the licensure renewal requirements in North Carolina. All teachers and administrators are required to earn two DLC CEUs as part of the Licensure Renewal process. This equates to 20 hours of training. All training must target the Digital Learning Competencies for Teachers and Administrators and requires the completion of a proof of practice in Wilkes County.
 
Training is offered with the Digital Learning Facilitators (DLFs) at schools where there is a unified technology focus. Schools must request this training through the online training request form. There are also numerous face-to-face learning opportunities offered throughout the school year at the district level that all teachers are welcome to attend. For those preferring a self-paced, independent approach, several online courses are being hosted by the DLFs through our Canvas LMS. In addition, DLC CEUs can be earned each summer through the WCS Summer Digital Learning Conference in June.
