Main Conference

Training Today for the Heroes of Tomorrow

This conference plans to be the best professional development opportunity for law and public safety teachers ever offered. LAPSEN has sought a diverse range of presenters to give every participant the opportunity to grow professionally.

We will have over 10 tracks and 50 sessions to watch that are all pre-recorded. Each night we will have choices from the pre-recorded sessions where the presenter will be live for you to ask questions and learn more about the session. If you miss a Q&A Live Session – those are recorded, too! You will have the whole month of November to watch as many times as you like.

We will also have nightly networking events so you can meet new friends and build your network. Monday will be by your favorite superhero. Tuesday we will group you by pathway. Wednesday you’ll meet others who teach in a similar socio/economic school setting. Every night you’ll meet new people who can strengthen you as a teacher! There is a networking event at 5pm EST and another at 6pm Pacific. You can attend both or the one that fits in your schedule!

Take time to visit our Partner and Vendor Space. They all have something that would benefit your program. There are conference specials and prize giveaways as well.

After the conference you will receive a certificate verifying your hours of participation for certification or contractual obligations of professional development.
