Continuing and Professional Education Program

QM CPE Rubric workbook coverThe Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) Rubric, Second Edition, a research- and best practices-supported tool, guides the design and review of online and blended non-credit courses. The design of your corporate training, lifelong learning, teacher professional development, and competency-based courses can benefit from use of the CPE Rubric Standards.

As of 2015, we’ve widened the Rubric’s focus to include competency-based education (CBE) and reflect continuing research in online and blended learning regarding non-credit courses. There is also a portal to allow for digital access to the annotated Rubric and standards. Lastly, we have a detailed workbook designed to assist with your use of the Rubric.

QM helps organizations create and sustain a successful Continuing and Professional Education program by providing a framework based on research and best practices. Learn more about the CPE Rubric’s development.
