3-Step Streamlined Certification Process
Step 1. Teacher Certification Testing
You will need to pass two types of certification tests:
- Content Test – this is a subject specific test that allows you to demonstrate your subject matter knowledge. This test is taken first.
- Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities (PPR) Test – this test allows you to demonstrate your knowledge about the theory and practice of education. This test is taken once all coursework is completed.
TRAINING via Instructional Coursework
Our streamlined process is the most effective and efficient route for you to complete your training. Once you complete three of the six courses, you are eligible for hire.
Step 2. Training
You will need to complete coursework and training that prepares you for the classroom to be a successful educator. All coursework and training is online and self-paced.
You will work through the program on your timetable – once a course is passed, you move on to the next.
Step 3. Teaching
You have the opportunity to be employed as the Teacher of Record under an Intern or Probationary Certificate.
Once your content test is passed, you have logged 30 hours of observation, and completed the first three courses, you can be hired in the classroom.View FAQ Infographic
