Certificate Program in Career and Technical Education (CTE)

The certificate program in CTE is designed for individuals who wish to teach in private trade schools or industrial training programs, where state teacher certification is not required. Non-degree students who do not need to complete a registered teacher preparation program receive a college issued certificate. The 12-credit program consists of four courses that are part of the baccalaureate degree program in Career and Technical Teacher Education. Completers of the certificate program may apply for the New York State Initial Certification through the individual evaluation pathway, if available at the time of completion of the certificate courses.
