You can get started now! We have rolling admissions throughout the year. Here’s what we need: your official transcripts, FBI and SBI background clearance and passing Praxis exam scores!
Once you have been hired, please verify your employment with us by submitting your “I Got a Job” form and copy of your offer of employment. Once verified, we will approve you to apply for your CCFT with the Virginia DOE.
There are various routes to send your transcripts. The fastest and most efficient method is to request your university to send electronic official transcripts to email@example.com. If your university does not have this as an option, you can mail official transcripts to our physical address.
The length of your certification journey is up to you! Our online training is self-paced and made to fit your schedule, so you can keep your current job while preparing to become a teacher. You must teach at least one academic year on your CCFT, but may teach up to three!
The certificate you receive through us comes directly from the State of Virginia Department of Education and is the same you would receive via any other route to initial certification in the state. Certification and licensure requirements vary from state to state, so contact each state’s department of education that you are looking to move to verify the reciprocation process.
