How does this program help me earn my online teaching certification?

The TEACH-NOW® Teacher Preparation Certificate Program provides the graduate level coursework required for an alternative teaching certification. If you hold a bachelor’s degree in a field other than education and would like to pursue a teaching certification, completing a preparation program is one requirement you will need to fulfill. After successfully completing the TEACH-NOW program, you will need to meet the additional requirements in the state where you are applying for certification, which may include additional exams. We are here to help you through the process.

Can I continue working full-time while going through the program?

The workload varies, but averages out to approximately 15 hours a week once candidates become familiar with our learning-to-teach model.

The first six months of Moreland University’s TEACH-NOW Teacher Preparation Certificate Program are almost exclusively online, and meeting times are scheduled by each cohort according to the group’s availability (typically outside of business hours).

The last three months of the program require 12 weeks of practice teaching in a classroom with a supervising mentor teacher.

For candidates already in the classroom, this requirement can typically be met through their current teaching assignment.
