You’re not alone. Find some answers to the most commonly asked questions here:
I need to pass a CORE licensure test for admission. What can I do?
Unfortunately, if you’re required to take a CORE licensure test for admission, you will need to take and pass the exam before you’re eligible to enroll in our program. Depending on your GPA and college major, you may be eligible for admission without taking a test. Please review admission options here.
My emergency permit expires 6/30/2020. What are my options?
I. If you are qualified for admission to Indiana Teachers of Tomorrow, you may be eligible for a Transition to Teaching permit next academic year. This will allow you to move onto a 5-year Practitioner’s License as early as August 2021.
II. If you are not yet qualified for admission to Indiana Teachers of Tomorrow, renewal requirements for your emergency permit have been waived for the 2020-21 school year. You will, however, need to complete your CPR training on or before 9/1/2020.
Is it still required to complete CPR training to qualify for a 2020-21 Transition to Teaching Permit?
No. You will not need to complete CPR training to qualify for a Transition to Teaching permit for the 2020-21 school year. This being said, you are required to complete the CPR training by 9/30/2020, so we encourage you to pursue blended CPR training options. This will allow you to complete the online component now, and the in-person component, when available. You will still need to complete your Youth Suicide Prevention training, which is available online.
