  • Your degree must be equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA of 2.5. To determine this, your transcripts will need to be evaluated by an approved agency.

THE UNIVERSITY STUDENT PATH

THE PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE PATH

Available to some candidates who have 2-7 years of full-time, wage-earning occupational experience in a trade and industry field.*

No degree? No problem. If you have at least 2-7 verifiable years of licensed work experience in a Trade and Industry field (depending on which area you wish to pursue), there are a plethora of subject areas under the umbrella of Career Technical Education (CTE) in which you can earn your teacher certification. To confirm your eligibility, you will need to submit a Statement of Qualifications to be evaluated for consideration.
