Online Teacher Certification: How Does it Work?

If you have a bachelor’s degree, you can become a certified teacher through our alternative teacher certification program. TeacherReady was one of the first online teacher certification programs to offer an alternative certification route. The program provides an avenue for students to earn professional teacher certification online, while still working a full-time job.

Students enrolled after April 4, 2022, can also receive a Florida Reading Endorsement upon completing the program.
