P Credit Courses

Native New York: American Indians and Dutch New Amsterdam

Virtual, 1 P Credit/15 CTLE Hours

Begins Monday, October 3, 2022

Our popular Native New York course for educators is once again available online—and free! Explore the history and legacies of early New York through guided workshops, lectures with thought-provoking guest speakers, and primary source analysis. Learn about the cultural, economic, and political relationships between the Lenape and the Dutch in the 16th and 17th centuries and uncover the lasting legacies these interactions have had on our city today. 

Thanks to the support of the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York, we are able to waive registration fees for Native New York. If participants wish to take the course for P Credit, they must still pay ASPDP’s course fee. Registration is required, seats are limited. 

The Museum of the City of New York is a CTLE certified provider. Participation in this program provides 15 hours of CTLE credit and 1 P Credit.

About P Credit Courses

The Museum of the City of New York offers Professional Credit (P and A+ Credit) Courses throughout the year. These courses are open to all educators, including educators not eligible for credits through the New York City Department of Education. 

P Credit in-service courses are offered in conjunction with the New York City Department of Education’s After School Professional Development Program (ASPDP) and can be applied towards teachers' 30+ salary differential. ASPDP courses may also be used by teachers and paraprofessionals toward the NYS 175 hours of Professional Development requirement, as long as their principal approves. 

The Museum of the City of New York is also a CTLE certified provider.

How to Register

Registration for the Museum's P Credit courses is a two-step process for those taking the course for P Credit. Educators interested in taking the courses not for P Credit are welcome to do so and only need to complete Step 1. All eligible educators receive CTLE credit for the course hours.  

Step 1: Register for the course on the Museum's website by clicking on the course's webpage and using the blue "Register" button at the top of the page. You can see currently available P Credit courses by visiting our calendar of events for educators.  

Step 2: Once the ASPDP course catalog opens, educators may register and pay the NYC DOE ASPDP course fee. Registration for P Credit courses through ASPDP closes at midnight the day before the course begins.
