Get Certified While Teaching Abroad
If you are a U.S. Citizen currently teaching abroad, you can complete your teacher certification coursework online.

American International Schools are on the lookout for teachers who hold certification from a U.S. state. You are also more likely to get a job teaching subjects other than English in local community school, if you are certified.
Even non-American schools abroad are more likely to hire a certified teacher over a non-certified teacher. They may also pay more, offer more extra-curricular positions, and allow more room for growth.
Invest in Your Future
The time may come to travel back to the U.S. When that happens, you will need to be a certified to teacher to get a teaching job in most school districts. Why not start now, while you are already teaching?
How Does It Work?
To earn your certification, you will follow three steps:
Complete the online coursework
Enhance your classroom skills with online coursework designed by expert educators to help you make a tremendous impact with your students.
Complete Your Field Work
In most cases, you can complete your field hours in your own classroom, working with a fellow teacher or school administrator as your mentor.
