Alternative Teaching Certification Programs in Wyoming

(found programs from 7 schools)

If you have a bachelor's degree in an endorsable, secondary content area, such as English or math, go ahead and apply for teaching positions in Wyoming.

In Wyoming, school districts are required to search for a properly licensed teacher for available positions. But should they be unable to find such a candidate, the district may offer the position to a candidate with a bachelor's degree in the desired content area so long as the candidate agrees to complete an alternative licensure program.

That's where the Northern Plains Transition to Teaching Program at Montana State University-Bozeman comes in. This federally funded program allows individuals to teach full-time in Wyoming schools while completing additional training and course requirements for full licensure.

NPTTP participants complete 25 credits in a condensed, online format that leads to Wyoming licensure. The program takes two years to complete for licensure alone and three years for participants seeking licensure plus a master's of education degree.

Candidates do not have to have a job offer in order to begin the NPTTP. The program assists participants in their job search and has cooperative agreements in place with a number of school districts ensuring that they will give consideration to NPTTP candidates. The total cost of the licensure only program is $7500.
