If you teach online at Mt. SAC, you have been SPOT-certified. Online professors already know: using technology for teaching is a continuous learning process!

The current faculty contract specifies: “SPOT certification is valid for a period of four (4) years. Every four (4) years, professors will be required to obtain a recertification ... approved by the Academic Senate, not to exceed four (4) hours.” -- (13.A.3) in the Faculty Contract
