Free Act 48 Hours!

PSEA is periodically offering free courses for Act 48 credit. All courses are given at the PSEA Regional office on Rt. 315 in Wilkes-Barre. Courses are paid for by your dues, so please take advantage of them! Members who have taken them in the past said that they are very informational. Information packets are available in the faculty rooms. If you missed the deadline for the last round of courses, stay tuned, since more courses will likely be held in the future.
