  • the program included a face-to-face practicum that meets the College’s current requirement of a minimum of 80 days, or,
  • if you have had one year of teaching experience subsequent to your teacher education program and while you were certified in the jurisdiction.

To be eligible for certification, you will have to meet the academic and language proficiency requirements for certification.
