Once you’ve applied, ECAP will guide you through the process of qualifying to teach. We will lead you to the best test prep resources and provide you with any reviews and practice exams that we have developed.This is where we begin to customize your certification plan.

At the point where you meet qualification to teach, you will be invited to enroll in preliminary coursework. Our training is extremely customized to your area of certification as you can see by the training below.

When you receive your first job as a teacher of record, ECAP assigns an advisor to you. You will have access to your advisor throughout the year as you need them, and the advisor will visit your classroom periodically to make sure that you are being successful.

The quality of our advisors is the primary difference between ECAP and our competitors. Also included in this fee is the documenting of your qualification and recommending of certificates as needed during the program.
