BATH — People interested in becoming certified as special education teachers in Maine are invited to participate in a video conference session at University College at Bath/ Brunswick, 9 Park St., from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday.

The program will feature Heather Ball, special education program coordinator at the University of Maine at Machias (UMM). Ball will discuss opportunities for special education certification available from UMM in collaboration with University College and the University of Maine at Augusta (UMA).

For those who already have a bachelor’s degree, Ball will suggest post-baccalaureate options for certification.

As part of the agreement, students would enroll in UMA’s bachelor of arts in liberal studies program while completing all of the courses — including student teaching — that are required to be fully certified by the Maine Department of Education.
