Alternative Certificate in Teaching
The Alternative Certification in Teaching Certificate equips candidates who have content knowledge with the pedagogy necessary to become effective secondary teachers in CTE classrooms. This alternative post-baccalaureate program applies to the following license fields to teach CTE in high schools: Arts and Communications, Business, Health Services, Industrial and Engineering Technology, Natural Resources, and Public and Human Services.
Three options are available for the Alternative Certification in Teaching Certificate candidates:
- Track I
- Candidates entering with a baccalaureate degree will complete coursework leading to a standard provisional license in a CTE content field.
- Track II
- Candidates who enter with an Associate degree in the content area and a minimum of three years of industry experience will complete coursework leading to a standard provisional restricted license in CTE.
- Candidates entering for the alternate route to CTE Restricted licensure will complete an intake form for the Alternative Certification program counselor, and provide documentation of a passing score on the Praxis Core exam, documentation of industry experience and/or CTE content coursework.
Both tracks will prepare candidates who have content knowledge with the pedagogy necessary to become effective teachers in CTE classrooms.
