Each participant must pass all required content and pedagogy exams in order to be eligible for a standard certificate.
Your required content exams depend upon your specific teaching assignment. ECAP will let you know which content exams are required at the appropriate time. If you would like to discuss your specific situation now, feel free to call us at 817-284-7731.
Pedagogy (PPR) Exams
ECAP will begin your PPR exam preparation once you are in the classroom. The PPR exam is the same across all common core subjects, so we do prepare our interns as a group through on-line and face to face training.
Career and Tech
Career and Technology teachers' testing requirements are often very different from the norm. In many cases the only test that is required is the PPR. Please give us a call to discuss your situation if you plan to teach in a career and technology (aka trades and industry) field. We believe that training and support should be the foundation of any certification program. See our Training Calendar and Curriculum for more information subject and area specific training - not "one size fits all".
ECAP Academy is the core of our training. We hold Academy for three weeks during the summer each year. When our interns enter the classroom for the first time, training will still be fresh in their minds. Academy represents approximately 160 clock hours and covers a wide range of subjects that you'll need to understand during your first year in the classroom.
