Students that wish to limit their studies to the minimum requirements for teaching certification and are not interested in pursuing a teaching master's degree should consider the Post-Bachelor's Teaching Certificate, the Graduate Intern Teaching Certificate, or the Instructional Technology Specialist Certificate.
This online teaching certification program will prepare you for a Pennsylvania Instructional I Certificate. Through the operation of interstate reciprocity agreements, a Pennsylvania teaching certificate may be converted to an analogous teaching certificate in another state. We recommend prospective students contact their state’s Department of Education to find out these transfer procedures before enrolling.
