The Authority in Alternative
Certification for Texas Teachers
The Education Career Alternatives Program (ECAP) has been training new teachers and guiding them through the teacher certification process since 2001. Our director, Sharon Fikes, created ECAP after 11 years as the director of Alternative Certification at the Education Service Center, Region XI.
At ESC, Region XI Sharon opened one of the first state-based alternative certification programs in Texas. Although ECAP has the distinction of being the first privately owned teacher certification program in Texas the experience and success of our Director is truly our greatest asset.
As a result, we have a teacher training program that is highly preferred by the school districts we serve and a depth of knowledge of the teacher certification process that is not available anywhere but ECAP.
