You can become a teacher in Ohio on your own schedule, without quitting your current job or going into debt. Try our teacher certification program free for seven days and see if you are ready to start earning your Ohio teaching certificate. Enroll and study online to become an Ohio teacher with the nonprofit American Board program.
The first step to get started is selecting and taking the OAE (Ohio Assessment for Educators) exam for the subject you want to teach. Your OAE exam should be completed before starting the American Board program.
You can get certified as an Ohio teacher for high needs subject areas, like the ones listed below.
PLEASE NOTE: American Board does not certify Ohio candidates in Early Childhood Education, Special Education or any non-teaching subject.
Candidates of our program may take the Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) and Writing Proficiency Test (WPT) for world language licensure areas. See the Language Testing International (LTI) website for exam information and registration.
Contact the ODHE certification department at (877) 644-6338 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on these requirements. You may also visit the Ohio Higher Ed website to learn more.
