Training with ALC
Adventist Learning Community (ALC) conducts training for Elementary Encounter, Secondary Encounter, and bridge courses for teachers trained in one curriculum but transitioning to another.
For teachers to obtain an Encounter login, they must send a copy of their certificate to their union certification registrar.
ALC Bridge Course
Teachers who have completed elementary or secondary Encounter training and are required to teach secondary or elementary Bible classes must take a Bridge course on ALC.
Pre-service teachers will not be given an Encounter login. Once they are hired by a NAD school they can receive their Encounter login after their Union registrar has checked their transcript.
NAD College/University professors who are teaching Encounter in their methods courses can contact their Union to request a login once they have completed the training. They will have access to the Encounter materials to share with their pre-service teachers.
These full training courses are available in the Adventist Learning Community.
