General Information


The Professional Development Institute (PDI) reimburses full-time and part-time teachers and school systems for the cost of certification exams and any related materials that would assist them in passing the exams. Reimbursement is only provided for TSA approved programs and certifications.


The PDI reimburses teachers who need a review of the “Body of Knowledge” for the certification examination. We call these review courses “Pre-Examination Reviews” (PERs). The PDI does NOT provide advance funding, it only reimburses after the exam is taken.


The Self-Study program reimburses teachers up to $150 for books, online material, or courses related to the certification in addition to the cost of the certification examinations. Applications must be received at least 30 days prior to taking an exam.
