Continuing Professional Education Portal

Professional development and graduate education are important components of the plans of work for Extension agents to continue to gain knowledge and skills for program improvement and personal growth.

Welcome! If you have reached this site, then you are probably a 4-H Youth Development professional (most likely from North Carolina) who is seeking resources and/or information to continue your professional growth through quality educational opportunities.

The following links will direct you most quickly to a specific continuing professional education (CPE) initiative designed to best meet your needs. However, should you need further assistance or information, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. R. Dale Safrit, Associate Professor and Extension Specialist, who coordinates CPE for NC 4-H.

Have a great professional development journey!
