Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
How do I sign up for a COpilot account?
To create a COpilot account, visit www.ceacopilot.org, click Log In and either verify your Association membership or create a guest account. This easy process doesn’t take more than 30 seconds!
How much time does a class take?
Most COpilot classes are 15 instructional hours spread over five or six weeks. Students should expect to spend about three hours per week doing class activities.
How much does it cost to enroll in a class?
For Colorado Education Association members, enrolling in a COpilot class costs $45 per class per credit hour. So, for a one graduate credit class, members pay $45; for a two credit class, $90; for a three credit class, $135.
Guests and potential Association members pay $100 more per class per credit. The pricing for them starts at $145, goes to $190, and then to $235.
Can I cancel a class enrollment?
Per CEA COpilot policies that each user must agree to, users can manage their own enrollments, which includes canceling an enrollment at any time during an ongoing class. In order to receive a full enrollment refund, users must cancel an enrollment either before the class begins or within 48 hours after the class officially begins. Any cancelation occuring after the class has been active for at least 48 hours is not entitled to a refund.
Can I earn credit, clock hours, and a certificate?
The answer is a resounding “Yes!” Nearly all of the classes on COpilot qualify for graduate credit from Adams State University. Graduate credit is always optional and has an additional fee of $55 (ASU) or $65 (UNC) per credit.
All of the classes are eligible for license renewal hours through the Colorado Department of Education. At the conclusion of each class, you will receive a certificate of completion for your records provided you submit a class evaluation.
Why am I not seeing any scheduled class sections?
CEA COpilot aligns its calendar with Adams State University so that the graduate credit process goes as smoothly as possible. This means that there are brief periods where no new class sections are available for enrollment, especially in December when the University closed for the holiday break. Typically, our academic calendar follows the timeline below:
- Fall Semester: early August through early December (we do not start new classes from mid-November through December)
- Spring Semester: early January through early May (we do not start new classes after early April)
- Summer Term: early May - early August (we do not start new classes after early July)
If you're not seeing any new sections, it's likely we're in one of the windows mentioned above. If that isn't the case and you're still not seeing new sections, please reach out to email@example.com for more information.
Can I get the syllabus for the class before making a decision?
We do not publish syllabi on course pages due to the fact those documents are considered as documentation belonging to CEA COpilot. They become available to learners upon enrolling in a class. That being said, we're happy to provide any syllabus upon request. Simply email the COpilot team at firstname.lastname@example.org for that information.
Can my district use COpilot for its professional development?
CEA has worked hard to make sure districts in partnership with the local association can use COpilot to run all of their professional development. We do not charge districts to use the platform. Instead, our requirement is that the district and local association reach an agreement that dictates the school district will pay members who facilitate the classes a fair stipend. For more information about this kind of opportunity, please contact our team at email@example.com.
How are classes structured?
All of our classes are fully facilitated, which means you’ll have a trained CEA member leading you and teachers from across Colorado through the content. Our classes are timebound so that the facilitation makes sense. Through using this mostly asynchronous method, teachers can more easily collaborate with each other, share experiences, and receive coaching as they practice strategies in their classrooms.
