Upon successful completion of an approved teacher preparation program, individuals are prepared to take state certification examinations to become certified/licensed to teach.
It is now quite common for state licensing boards to offer a variety of alternative teacher preparation programs, non-traditional programs aimed at individuals who have already attained a bachelor’s degree or higher in a field related to physical education.
A bachelor’s degree may be obtained as part of an approved teacher preparation program, a state-approved program that prepares individuals for licensure/certification.
An approved preparation program includes all of the necessary components of a bachelor’s degree program, as well as a student teaching experience, which usually takes place in the program’s final semester.
