Upon passing the Pre-Screener and meeting highly qualified requirements ECAP will invite you to enroll in training.
Now you can begin the first set of courses which are delivered in an online format.
More importantly though, you can start looking for your first teaching job.
Your acceptance letter and information packet will follow your enrollment.
Which includes a "Statement of Eligibility" to present to schools for applying to teaching positions.
Finally, obtaining an employment contract initiates the "Intern" phase of the program.
As soon as you receive a contract call ECAP at 817-284-7731 and share the good news with us.
We will give you further instructions when we hear from you. As you progress through your first year teaching, ECAP provides support and
monitors progress in the three key areas of testing, training and classroom performance.
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.
