Certificate for Professional Teaching Program (CPTP)

Certificate for Professional Teaching Program (CPTP) is a 31 unit special offering open to degree holders who wish to become professional teachers. The curriculum includes subjects in the professional education component of the teacher education program which are required by the Commission on Higher Education and the Professional Regulations Commission. You are allowed to take maximum of 9 units in a semester or term which can be completed in 1.5 to 2 years.

  • Once you have completed the 18 units, you may already take the LET.
  • If you do not have a teaching experience, it is imperative that you finish the 31-unit program since experiential teaching is a requirement especially if you plan on on teaching in public schools. 
  • If you have already teaching experience, you will need to submit proof to the dean of College of Education to waive the 8 units practice teaching and you will be required only to take the Field Study. After compliance, you will be issued a certificate of completion of the program.

We do not have entrance examination. To enroll, kindly visit our admission office and submit the following requirements:

  • Certificate of Transfer Credential (Honorable Dismissal) from the last school attended
