The CP in Woodworking Education is a package of existing courses that provides licensed, secondary education teachers in Utah with a pathway for adding the Associate level Woods endorsement to their professional portfolio. In addition, it establishes a means for individuals who wish to enter the teaching profession and are seeking a teaching credential with a means to demonstrate the content knowledge required for the Associate level Woods endorsement. It supports the endorsement portion of the licensing process only. It is not a full-fledged teacher preparation program and does not result in a recommendation for licensure.
