Before you enroll in any course in the Online Professional Development Institute (OPDI)™, you must first submit an Admissions Application. If you are a current OPDI student, you do not need to submit another application.
After you submit the OPDI application, you will need to sign up for an NDEO Membership before you can register and pay for OPDI courses. To learn more about NDEO membership, click here.
OPDI students are accepted on a rolling basis. Applications are reviewed in order of receipt, and applicants should expect to hear from NDEO within a week of their submission date. Please submit your OPDI application at least a week prior to the start date of your desired course in order to allow for processing time.
IF YOU ARE A CURRENT NDEO MEMBER, PLEASE LOGIN TO YOUR ACCOUNT BEFORE COMPLETING THE APPLICATION.
