The Designated Subjects Credential courses are offered by LACOE through the University of San Diego (USD). All courses are in an online format
(except for the Advanced Professional Training for CTE Credentials
course which is only offered onsite). All courses are offered four terms per year--winter, spring, summer, and fall-with two class sections of each course scheduled per term.
