Candidates are not required to take additional college courses in order to earn a teaching certificate. ABCTE offers Passport to Teaching certification in English, math, general science, biology, physics and chemistry.

The American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence is non-profit organization, dedicated to recruiting, certifying and supporting excellent teachers essential for student success.
