Georgia Alternative Teacher Certification
Alternative Georgia Teacher Certification is available through a number of routes. The Georgia Teacher Alternative Preparation Program (TAPP) is available to anyone holding a PSC-approved degree. TAPP begins with a 2-year intern program, followed by full acceptance in TAPP at a participating school. Teachers with expired certification, or teachers who wish to obtain certification in an additional subject-area may apply for a non-renewable certificate. In special cases, standardized tests are available for expedited certification. A detailed list of alternative certification routes is available through the Georgia Professional Standards Commission.
