If you are interested in earning Professional Learning Units (PLUs) to put toward your Rhode Island professional certificate, you'll need an account to enroll and complete online courses through BRIDGE-RI. Please note that anyone interested in learning more about MTSS can create a free account, including educators not currently working in a school or district, out-of-state educators, pre-service educators, or family members. However, you do not need an account to access any information freely available on the mtssri.org website.
