“An individual with a bachelor’s degree in a content area (such as mathematics or English) returns to a college of education for a program of study that may enable him/her to take courses and teach simultaneously. The teacher works under a two-year, provisional certificate and usually completes about 30 semester hours.  When the college program is completed and the designated assessment test passed, the college recommends and the individual receives an initial certificate. Some of these programs are offered via distance learning, some programs offer a master’s degree plus certification and some offer only the certification.”
