Counselor and Adviser Training
Our 28 individual self-paced modules include topics like financial aid, military career options, college applications, graduation plans, entrance and placement exams, career pathways and much more.
Three modules have already been released and are available now. The rest are being rolled out throughout this fall.
Thousands of TX educators contributed the modules, all of which you can access whenever you need them. TXOC counselor resources also include a badging platform to track your own knowledge and skills.
You can earn continuing education credits through Texas OnCourse, particularly around the implementation of HB 5 high school graduation requirements. An outline of the topics that will be covered in the training for counselors and advisers can be found here.
Sign up for our email list and you’ll be among the first to know when we launch new modules this fall.
We’ll let counselors and advisers tell you about our resources in their own words:
“These have been the best (clear, concise, and interactive) training modules for school counselors I have experienced in my 13 years as a school counselor. I wish I would’ve had access to this format of information years ago!”
“Texas OnCourse provides a place for the new counselors to find new information and the seasoned counselors get a great refresher and possibly learn something new.”
“Texas OnCourse provides information for counselors on critical components of the college application process. It serves as professional development to keep up with changes and also a tool to quickly access information as a refresher.”
“There is so much to know and even more that changes every year as new laws are passed. It is great to have a resource handy to answer all of my questions.”
“There is nothing out there for counselors and advisers like this.”
“In my 8 years as a high school counselor, I have not seen a comprehensive program that seeks to house all major resources in one area. Due to the limited amount of time educators have, this is extremely helpful.”
