Alternative Teacher Certification

We train teachers.

Our innovative approach to alternative teacher certification develops the next generation of educators through an intentional combination of coursework, exams, and hands-on field experience.

How We Do It

Trusted and affordable.

Our approach to teacher certification combines flexibility and quality in an industry-leading online curriculum designed by experienced educators. National accreditation combined with flexible payment options, our programs are the most trusted and affordable route to earn your teaching credential.

Simple. Accessible. Affordable. There are no up-front costs and only a simple 4 step process to get started:

  • STARTUP: Free application as well as a free “Professional Learning and the Path to Certification” course included.
  • TESTING: A state-specific proficiency exam is required prior to program eligibility. Exams in content area and pedagogy and professional responsibility are also part of the process. A final PPR or PLT is required at completion.
  • TRAINING: Once approved and enrolled, you can start your self-paced coursework
  • TEACHING: A paid residency (or clinical teaching) is required as part of the program, but iteach doesn’t stop there. We also provide teacher resources to help you get a job, as well as keep you in touch with what’s going on in the world of education.

Why We Do It

We Get You.

As teachers ourselves, we know educators have the ability to change the future by developing the leaders of tomorrow.  The U.S. teacher shortage is impacting our communities. Students are being left behind. Potential is going unrealized. Our programs remove barriers to build a career in education and prepare future educators while keeping focusing on flexibility and affordability.

How Long Does Teacher Certification Take?

One of our most frequently asked questions and the answer depends on a number of factors – however, our program was created for teachers by teachers and is designed to have you teaching quickly and affordably.
