In 4 of our offered subjects (Biology, English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Special Education), we offer two variations of the program, Standard and Premium.
The Standard program provides students with the information they need to learn and pass the subject area exam and the Professional Teaching Knowledge (PTK) exam.
The Premium program provides students with everything included with the Standard program, along with additional study materials and practice tests. The Premium program also includes a job counseling webinar and workbook to assist our students with job hunting.
Chemistry, General Science, Elementary Education, History, and Physics certifications are only available in Standard.
Standard and Premium students take the same exams and receive the same certification upon passing.
