#GetReady to Teach!

Complete Your Pre-Service Training

Right now is the perfect time to start our program and complete your Pre-Serice Training requirements in order to land your dream job this fall. When you complete your Pre-Service Training, you will become eligible to teach!

The first task to help your #GetReady to teach is to take and pass the SAE for your approved certification area. This exam is required by the South Carolina Department of Education.  Test preparation is an essential component to helping you prepare for the classroom. We encourage you to register and secure your testing date as soon as possible, as many testing centers have limited availability and are operating at reduced capacity. Even if you are not yet prepared to take your test, register for it now. 



Next, you’ll need to complete your online training courses, known as your Classroom Readiness Training. You have access to your Classroom Readiness Training immediately after you are enrolled and can locate your courses under the “Training Progress” page of your Intern Portal.
